The loss of lives and property in the Talensi mining community of Gbane in the Upper East Region is set to worsen in the coming days, according to civil society, as some individuals and groups are plotting “mayhem through acts of militancy and war”.
Describing the situation as volatile, the Northern Patriots in Research and Advocacy (NORPRA), a civil society organization, is calling on government to intervene.
In a statement released on Monday, NORPRA wants a thorough investigation into the operations of Cassius Mining Limited.
It alleges that the directors of the mining company have criminal records and that is against the laws of Ghana.
NORPRA wants government to find out the extent to which due diligence was done to register the company and “apply sanctions where necessary to individuals and organisations who may be found culpable”.
It observes that there has been an ascendancy in crime in the community and that may be due to the activities of hoodlums in the area.
