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.
They did not return home after almost 24 hours after they were contracted for the job.
A search was organised in the area on Sunday and the four bodies were found in the galamsey pit filled with water.
Their bodies have been deposited at the Kibi Government Hospital for an autopsy.
