An abandoned pit by illegal miners popularly known as ‘galamseyers’ has killed a Senior High School form one pupil at Besiase of the Eastern Region.

The Fourteen(14) year old girl, Mariama, met her untimely demise after she fell into the abandoned left in the community for years without reclamation.

The pit caved in on her, killing her instantly.

Her body was retrieved few hours after the incident.

Her demise comes two weeks after a 25-year-old man was also killed in a galamsey pit in the same area.

This had led the Odumase, Wisiwisi and Besiase youth to stage a protest to render their displeasure to the authorities and Nananom of the area about illegal mining activities.

According to the angry youth, the illegal miners are fond of leaving the pits uncovered, polluting the entire community in the course of their illegal activities.

They, therefore, appealed to the authorities and Nananom to force miners to cover the pits after their work is done.

Meanwhile, plans are underway by the traditional council to purify the land.
