The Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, DCOP Faustina Agyeiwaa Kodua Andoh-Kwofie, has been asked to expedite investigations into activities of Akonta Mining Limited in the Tano Nimiri Forest Reserve.

The company, owned by the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Ashanti Regional Chairman, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Wontumi, has been operating in the forest without a mining concession lease.

The disclosure was made by the Lands and Natural Resources Ministry and the Minerals Commission.

The matter, which was reported to the CID to be investigated, has for a year now and a half now, yielded no fruits, demanding for the call for actions to be expedited.

One of the petitioners, Martin Luther Kpebu, a private legal practitioner, speaking on TV3’s the KeyPoints Saturday, April 20, 2024, accused the CID boss of “playing games” with the matter.

“We reported Chairman Wontumi to the CID. Abu Jinapor, Minister for Lands and Natural Resources said that Chairman Wontumi did not have a mining lease. CEO of Minerals Commission, Martin Ayisi, says Chairman Wontumi did not have a mining lease yet he entered the Tano Nimiri Forest and till date, Madam Faustina Andoh-Kwofie, CID Boss is playing games with the case,” he cried out.

After one and a half years, the renowned lawyer is charging the CID boss to live up to her mandate and bring life to the matter.

“Madam Kwofie, if you know you can’t do the case, leave. One and a half years,” he charged.

His call followed two others he earlier made on the PDS scandal and the fumigation of schools which he promised to get the Vice President and President prosecuted for their involvement.

For Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Mr. Kpebu said his role in changing a clause in the PDS agreement from a bank guarantee to an insurance guarantee needs to be investigated, whilst President Akufo-Addo will have to answer for why he spent over GHC500 million on fumigation at a time where there was no Covid-19.
