The Director of Volta Resources, a minerals exploration company which has been litigating with Ms Huang since 2015, Nana Kofi Sarfo Prempeh, has subsequently petitioned the IGP regarding her latest actions; calling for her excavators and other equipment on the site to be seized.

Meanwhile, the Media Coalition against Galamsey has also impressed upon the Inspector General of Police, David Asante-Appeatu to further investigate Aisha for flouting the court orders after being granted bail.

The Coalition said it would be in the interest of the nation if the IGP took up the matter with urgency since the galamsey queen was not supposed to go back to the concession.
