Video of GH police officers begging and kneeling to ‘galamsey’ boys causes stir

A video on the internet tells the story of the helpless state of some, officers of the Ghana Police Service, begging and kneeling for illegal miners, or galamsey boys.

The content of the video tells a story of familiarity between the police officers in the area and the boys, whose occupation was to mine gold illegally.
