Martin Kpebu – I will personally file a complaint for Chairman Wontumi’s arrest



Martin Kpebu, a private attorney, has asked the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to detain Bernard Antwi Boasiako, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), for allegedly being involved in illegal mining.
The allegations that Mr. Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi, has been engaging in illegal mining activities in the Ashanti Region prompted Mr. Martin Kpebu to call for his arrest.This illegality also mentioned his company, Akonta Mining Limited.

Mr. Kpebu stated on Saturday’s Joy Newsfile that if the police do not act, he will personally file a complaint.
Martin Kpebu said that he is making this move because “President Akufo-Addo has shown that for him, he will cover up all erroneous appointees,” he said.He lives by that mantra.
I’ll let Eratus know that we should go, and I’ll go with him.“I will go and lodge an official complaint and be complainant in the case so that they will start a formal investigation,” he stated. “If he is not willing to be complainant, I am willing because if the Police are not willing to take in Chairman Wontumi, I will go and be complainant in the case.
He claims that the Police were surprised by the delay in arresting Chairman Wontumi because they had arrested the culprits quickly in other cases.

“Now IGP, save Ghana, save our day, control Wontumi…Where is IGP, can’t he go and arrest Wontumi?”He pressed.
However, reports that Chairman Wontumi is involved in illegal mining have been refuted.
He insisted that Akonta Mining Limited, his business, had all of the necessary paperwork.
Chairman Wontumi stated on Wontumi TV on Monday that he is prepared to make the documents available.
I am urging them to make use of the law.We ought to let the law do its work, and they ought to conduct their investigations.
He continued, “I have a large company that Akonta mining is under… I will make all the required documents available.”
The National Democratic Congress has asked President Akufo-Addo to immediately prosecute his officials who have been found to be complicit in illegal mining in order to demonstrate his dedication to the fight against “galamsey.”
At a press conference on Thursday, the party’s National Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, said that the government is talking rather than doing anything about the threat.

He stated that the government could not resolve the problem except by whipping its own officials.
Ghanaians are sick and tired of your vapid rhetoric and flowery speeches.The so-called fight against “galamsey” has been a spectacular failure, and the only way to salvage it is for you to step up and start finally whipping your errant appointees and NPP functionaries who are deeply involved in the “galamsey” business.
He stated, “We demand the immediate prosecution of all NPP functionaries and NPP officials who have engaged in illegal mining,” including, among others, Charles Bissue, Chairman Wontumi, Andy Owusu, Ekow Ewusi, and Prof. Frimpong Boateng. “The evidence is clear,” he added.
