Big Trouble For Wontumi As CID Is Petitioned To Arrest And Prosecute Him Over Galamsay Involvement

The Police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has been petitioned to arrest, investigate and prosecute Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi for his alleged involvement in illegal mining better known as Galamsay.

The petition was reportedly signed by Kenneth Ashigbey, private legal practitioner, Martin Kpebu, Kwame Asiedu and Edem Senanu.

They petitioners indicated that illegal mining has led to the pollution of water and destruction of forest reserves which poses a lot of threat to Ghanaians.

This comes after Martin Kpebu had threatened to personally lodge a complaint for the arrest of Chairman Wontumi.

Speaking in an interview with Joynews on Saturday, October 8, 2022, Martin Kpebu indicated that he is ready to escort Erasmus Donkor to the police station to lodge the complaint.

According to him, since the police are not willing to arrest Chairman Wontumi for doing Galamsay, he will personally make sure that  investigations are conducted so that justice will be served.
