The operation was therefore aimed at clamping down on the activities of the foreign nationals illegally producing the explosives, including dynamite in some mining communities in the Tarkwa-Nsuaem area.

The operation uncovered more than 20,000 pieces of explosives and 10,000 kilogram of ammonium nitrate manufactured by the foreigners and concealed in rice and flour sacks.

“The operation was premised on detailed intelligence aimed at clamping down on the manufacture, sale, and use of illegal dynamite in parts of the country, especially mining areas,” a source indicated.

It further indicated that the suspects have since been screened and transferred to the National Security in Accra for further investigations.
