Patrick Agyei Dankwa, the galamseyer whose mining equipment was burned to the ground by angry youth, has invoked the dreaded Antoa deity on President Akufo-Addo and his government.
Dankwa, CEO of Agyei Dankwa Investment, said the destruction of his property was due to the government’s war on galamsey and thus, he has to be reimbursed or his curses would follow this government.
Angry youth at Abekoase in the Atiwa district of the Eastern Region destroyed equipment belonging to Dankwa, which he claims was worth $1.5m. The equipment, which was burnt to the ground, included two new Liebherr excavators, three heavy duty generators, a new Nelson Gold concentrator, two drums of engine oil, two drums of hydraulic oil, a 5000-litre poly tank, 6000-litre diesel container, six water pumps, tools and equipment boxes and welding plants.
“Nana Addo and his government should take drastic measures and bring perpetrators to book else something bad will happen to the country. I am deeply hurt and if government takes no action, then God should use me to punish these politicians. They will face even more disasters more than I am facing now” he said on Neat Fm.
“The God I serve will deal with them if government refuses to take drastic measures to solve my situation because our leaders don’t speak the truth”
Dankwa said he has all the necessary permits from the Minerals Commission to mine thus his cause is righteous and his curses would work if there’s no action taken.
