Four illegal miners who attacked and robbed some Chinese nationals at Kobeng, near Nkawie in the Atwima-Nwabiagya South Municipality, have been remanded in police custody by the Nkawie Circuit Court.
The plea of Nana Adu Gyamfi 20, Dickson Mensah 22, Akwasi Boakye 36, and Kwame Dankwa 25, was not taken and they would reappear before the Court presided over by Mr Michael Johnson Abbey on September 12, this year.
