Security personnel believed to be protecting the concession of Adamus Resources, a gold mining company at Nkroful in the Ellembelle District of the Western Region, have allegedly burnt alive an illegal miner they arrested on the concession at Anwia-Bokazo.
The victim, Michael Budo, who’s a physically challenged person, has sustained life-threatening burns all over his body after the security personnel allegedly poured petrol on him and set him on fire.
He managed to narrate his ordeal at the Ekwe Government Hospital where he is receiving medical help.
“Yesterday [Thursday] around 7:30 to 8:00 am, I was attacked by land guards. They took me to where the Chafang machines were and started beating me up with a belt, ” he said.
