I won’t allow another ‘Denkyira-Obuasi’ incident to happen in Nyinahini – DCE

The District Chief Executive for Atwima Mponua in the Ashanti region, Williams Darko has asked the Chief of Nyinanhini, Nana Amanpene Twum Boateng II to immediately return to the town and ensure unity and peace for the development of the town.

According to him, he will desist any attempt by anyone to cause mayhem in the town after he seized mining equipment belonging to Engineers & Planners.

“We are not ready to fight with anyone and allow what happened in Denkyira Obuasi to happen in our town. I will not allow that and so we urge the chief to rather come to his town so we can jaw jaw and move the town forward” he said on Accra based Neat fm.

The chief in the area took a swipe at Atwima Mponua DCE for his role in an attack on a mining concession belonging to Exton Cubic Group Limited.

He accused Williams Darko of inciting the youth to seize mining equipment and prevented the partners the firm, Engineers & Planners, from entering the concession.

Nana Amanpene Twum Boateng II warned the action of the DCE could have triggered the events akin to what was recorded in the Central Region town of Denkyira Obuasi, which led to the lynching of an army officer.

But reacting to the issue, Mr Williams Darko expressed shock at the assertions of the chief.

He described as false claims by the Chief of Nyinanhini, Nana Amanpene Twum Boateng II that he incited the youth in the area against mining company, Exton Cubic Group Limited.

He is of the view that he personally seized mining equipment and prevented the partners the firm, Engineers & Planners, from entering the bauxite concession.

Mr Darko insists the equipment were seized because of improper documentation.

Meanwhile, Exton Cubic Group Limited has threatened to take legal action against the Ashanti Regional Minister if he does not release the equipment belonging to Engineers and Planners owned by Ibrahim Mahama.
