A group calling itself the Patriotic Advocates for Truth, Peace and Development, a non- partisan pressure group, has asked President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to sack 10 DCEs for their alleged involvement in perpetuating illegal mining in the country.
A statement signed by the chairman of the group, Isaac Ochem, alleged it has evidence of the connivance and collusion of such DCEs in the illegal act.
The group said it was willing to provide the President with evidence of either direct and indirect involvement of the individuals in the destruction of the country's water bodies and forest reserves.
