The Operation Vanguard Task Force team has arrested a female illegal miner at Datano in the Amansie West District of Ashanti.
The 35-year-old Ama Frema who told the task force she hails from Obuasi in the Ashanti Region was picked up on Saturday, August 12, 2017.
Frema who has since been handed over to the Manso Nkwanta District Police Headquarters for processing for court told the task force she was a full-time illegal miner and does not do any other business.
The Operation Vanguard is aimed at ensuring that the President of Ghana’s Special Initiative against illegal mining was carried out.
