Confirmed: Nine dead bodies retrieved so far from a mining pit in Gbane as rescue continuous


Apexnewsgh can confidently report that nine human dead bodies have been retrieved from a mining pit in Gbane in the Talensi District of the Upper East region.

According to the Upper East Regional Chairman of Small scale miners Robert Tampore Boazor who spoke to Apexnewsgh in an interview Thursday morning said, after a two-day effort of pumping water out from the mining pit where the deceased was trapped following the Monday heavy downpour in Gbane community, they were able to retrieve nine dead bodies.

The nine bodies according to Mr. Tampore Boazor was handed over to the families of the deceased after some level of checks by a doctor.
He further pointed that, even though nine dead bodies have been found, they will intensify their search this Thursday morning in search of two to three others individuals missing.

Meanwhile, Stephen Yakubu the Upper East Regional Minister visited the scene as he announced that a committee will be set up to investigate the cause of the tragedy and other mining accidents in the area.

However, the leadership of the small-scale miners in the Upper East region has blamed the incident on a flood caused by a shoddy bridge construction in the area. Chidozie Stephen
