Accra-based 3news first reported the tragic incident, saying marks of assault were all over their bodies.

“It appears they were beaten and strangled…one of them had his eye broken. The teeth of some of them were also broken,” Yaw Ofori who saw the bodies was quoted as saying.

Three of the deceased were said to have been hired by a galamsey operator to remove his excavator from site on Saturday. The fourth person is said to be a worker of the unnamed galamsey operator.
