Angry Fanteakwa residents clash with BSD mining company, trucks blocked from plying roads

Angry residents of Akyem Saamang in the Fanteakwa South district in the Eastern Region on Wednesday September 7,2022 blocked the main road in the community that leads to Akyem Osino preventing trucks belonging to BDS mining company from plying the the road.

The irate residents accused the mining company of deteriorating the road which was already in bad condition making it unmotorable especially whenever it rains.

According to the angry residents, dozens of heavily loaded trucks of BSD mining company cart gold dust daily from their mining site in Akyem Saamang area to their main mining site in Akyem Asiakwa near Kyebi to extract the gold.

This has led to serious negative impact on the road in the area however the company has failed to rehabilitate the road.

Kwame George leader of the angry residents told Starr News ” about 200 trucks of BSD mining has been plying this road everyday from morning to evening. They have destroyed our road.They transport the gold dust from the mining site here to Akyem Asiakwa. They don’t care even rehabilitating the road for us all they they want is their gold so we have blocked the road this morning. About 15 trucks have been locked this morning”.
