Missing excavator has been found, Ellembelle DCE and accomplices in police custody.

The Ghana Police Service has indicated that a team of operations and intelligence officers have discovered the missing excavator several kilometres into a forest within the Ellembelle District.

The team, according to the police, have been working day and night since the incident of the missing excavators emerged.

The police also arrested the DCE of Ellembelle, Mr. Kwasi Bonzo, and three others for attempting to obstruct their work.

ā€œWhile the team of police officers were escorting the excavator to Takoradi, at the Axim Junction, the DCE of Ellembelle, Mr. Kwasi Bonzo organised and led some thugs to attack the police and obstruct the operation. The DCE and three others were therefore arrested accordingly.ā€

The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Ellembelle in the Western Region, Kwasi Bonzo, recently accused the Esiama Divisional Police Command over two missing excavators from the site of illegal mining, popularly known as ā€˜galamseyā€, near the Nkroful Senior High School (SHS).

He expressed worry that brand new excavators retrieved from a ā€˜galamsey siteā€™ in the custody of the police vanished.

Investigations are still underway to recover the other excavator and arrest all those behind it to face justice.
