An eyewitness who confirmed the incident to Starr News said the development is causing fear and panic in the Kusi Township.

“The guy and his girlfriend have settled here (Kusi) and they are into galamsey. But the man has gone in for another girl behind his woman. Now the first girl who had traveled to their hometown returned and strangely found the new girl and her boyfriend in bed.

The Akwatia Police Command has reportedly commenced investigations into the matter.
