For fear of being arrested and fined huge sums of money they couldn’t afford, they said they chose to stay underground than to use the main exit of the company to be arrested after their illegal point of entry had been blocked by AngloGold Ashanti’s security.

The incident occurred at the AngloGold’s Ashanti Mine’s shaft at Anwiam in the Obuasi East district of the Ashanti region.
