A former anti-galamsey taskforce member, Twum Ampofo-Agyekum, has recounted why he rejected numerous bribes offered him in the line of his duty.

According to him, he has been offered as high as GHS 700,000.00 and amounts not below GHS 500,000.00 just so he could compromise his role as a leader of the taskforce.
