“What has aggravated the situation is the recent shooting which occurred on 26th July ,2020 at Akyem Muoso led by Ahenkan Boateng, Kofi Anoma, Kwasi Amoah, and Kwame Dankwa in full glare of the public where a resident of Akyem Muoso -Daniel Okyere was shot in the abdomen, the Barima Ofori said.

According to him, the community has prevented the director of operation of Galampstop Kingston Okomeng Kisi who is also the Eastern Regional Chairman of NPP from mining in the community again after he failed to reclaim abandoned pits he mined  around the Community which continue to claim lives of residents.

He further alleged that the gun wielding thugs, are working under the guise of members of Galampstop but invade the community to brutalize innocent residents in chieftaincy impasse which Ahenkan Boateng has an interest in.
