After the operation, he posted pictures of mining zone and exavators they took during the operation. He wrote;
"On Monday, 24th May 2021, myself, together with the Marine Police and National Security stormed Emerɛdane, a community next to Mampong in the Western Region to conduct operation against illegal mining on the Whin River. We received an intelligence from a Chief and we responded accordingly. Though the miners unfortunately upon leaked information absconded, their excavators that were hidden in bushes were found and demolished because it was a total breach of the red light zones per the government's directive.*
"I will urge all to heed to the call from the President to desists from such acts because we will not allow anyone to engage in it. I will still admonish all to note that, our water bodies and forest still remains a no go area for illegal miners."
