The Concerned Farmers Association of Ghana (CFAG) has condemned a viral video showing Ernest Frimpong, the Parliamentary Candidate for Amenfi East and Western Regional Minister, allegedly inciting illegal miners (galamseyers) to attack police and military personnel.

CFAG described Mr. Frimpong's conduct as "unfortunate and unacceptable," stating that it undermines the rule of law and endangers the lives of security personnel.

The Association is calling for the arrest and prosecution of the Parliamentary candidate.

"Inciting violence against those sworn to protect our nation is a serious offense, and we demand swift action from the appropriate authorities. We stand in solidarity with the security services and urge them to remain committed to their duties," the statement added.

Additionally, CFAG called on the government to address the issue of galamsey, which has devastated farmlands and water bodies.

The Association urged Ghanaians to protect the environment and ensure sustainable farming practices.

In response, the candidate has denied inciting illegal miners to attack the military.
