Chinese illegal miner shot dead by robbers in Wassa Amenfi

An illegal Chinese miner has been shot dead by armed robbers at Wassa Aborokyire Krobo in the Wassa Amenfi East District of the Western Region.

The armed robbers, numbering four, shot and killed Lhun Mann, one of the four Chinese who was first to step out from his room.

They then robbed the three of a sum of GHC45,000, mobile phones and other belongings.

Preliminary investigations, according to the Police, show that the Chinese were all set to begin their illegal mining operations in the remote community when the unfortunate incident occurred.

Speaking to Citi News, the Wassa Akropong Police Commander, Superintendent Bright Boafo Kwabena, said investigations have commenced into the incident.

“This morning around 2:30am they saw about 4 armed men approach their accommodation so one of the them, Lhun Mann, who is now deceased, he approached the men who gave a warning shot, then the 4 men gunned down the man. The 4 men entered their rooms and ransacked the room and according to the other three surviving Chinese, the armed men made away with Gh45,000 and mobile phone.”

“We went to the village about 2 or 3 hours journey from Wassa Akropong. We started the investigation and we picked the body to the Wassa Akropong morgue, and from the little investigation we made, they were about to start mining because they are not doing any other work there. They secured the site and they gathered resources to do the illegal mining in the typical village,” Superintendent Bright Boafo Kwabenya explained.

The Wassa Amenfi East area is noted for illegal mining particularly involving a lot of Chinese nationals.
