26-Year OldWoman Dead After Her Toilet Sunk Into A Pit Dug By Illegal Miners(Video)

In Odumasi, Ashanti Region, a mining pit dug beneath a house has sunk a private toilet.

A young woman who was using the facility at the time of the collapse was killed in the incident.

The pit was dug by illegal miners in the Asante Akyem Central Municipality, and it is one of many such hidden holes dug beneath houses in the area.

According to sources, several houses are in danger of collapsing as a result of these hidden pits.

The body of the unidentified woman has since been recovered using an excavator.

Meanwhile, residents in the Eastern Region town of Apinamang are being intimidated and frustrated as illegal miners force them out of their homes.

Illegal mining, colloquially known as ‘galamsey,’ is wreaking havoc and endangering residents’ livelihoods.

In the case of Joyce Wowornyo, ‘galamseyers’ dug around her house in an attempt to seize her land in search of gold.
