A young man met his untimely death on Thursday 25th March 2021 in the Eastern region.
The deceased, who is from Ampatia in the kwarbeng district in the Eastern region of Ghana reportedly died in a galamsey pit.
The pit which was left uncovered by the miners have been a trap to the inhabitants of the village. In October 2019, a 23 year old boy in the same village got drowned in a similar pit.
The boy who is a an illegal miner reportedly went to the mining sight on Wednesday night. However on Thursday morning he went there again in the morning and met his untimely death.
Although the President of the republic of Ghana has ban these illegal activities, it remains the only source of livelihood for most of the youth in the country, hence the difficulty in puting a stop to it.
The remains of the boy has been deposited at the morgue awaiting date for burial.
The love of money is the root of all evil but the lack of money is the devil itself.
God have Mercy
