40 illegal miners (galamsey operators)are reported to have been trapped in a pit at Tiagbani in the Talensi-Nabdam district of the Upper East Region.

Peace Fm’s northern regional correspondent, Kwabena Ntow reported that, seven [7] of the bodies rescued so far died shortly and have had their bodies deposited at the district hospital for autopsy.

Briefing Peace FM’s 6am News bulletin, Friday, Kwabena Ntow said 33 of the miners are still trapped in the pit.

“They went to operate at their site but unfortunately the pit caved in on them. Rescuers are doing their best to dig out the dead bodies but at the moment the whole township is mourning,” he said.
