It is believed that the activities of the sand winners in the district have contributed to the pollution of the Dalun River which feeds the White Volta.

Hours after the destruction of the trucks, Ras Mubarak took to Facebook to lash out at the military, accusing the soldiers of behaving in a lawless manner.

He vowed to ensure that the soldiers are punished and compensation paid to the victims.

He said: A contingent of soldiers went on a rampage in my constituency this afternoon, burning down several tipper trucks and an excavator in the name of protecting the white White Volta.

"When people are suspected of breaking the law, you arrest and take them through due process. You do not take the laws into your hands because u are in uniform and burn down everything in sight.

"Be rest assured we will push for punishment and compensation."
