In a troubling turn of events, Grand Cape Mount County finds itself embroiled in a conflict between local residents of Kinjor and the Bea Mountain Mining Company, escalating into a chaotic scene of protests and alleged police brutality.

Reports emerging from the region indicate a deepening struggle between the inhabitants of Kinjor and the mining company, with tensions reaching a boiling point in recent days. The catalyst for the protests appears to be longstanding grievances over land rights, environmental concerns, and perceived exploitation by the mining company.

During the latest protest, which took place in Kinjor, the situation spiraled out of control, resulting in numerous injuries and the reported deaths of three individuals. Eyewitnesses claim that the escalation in violence can be attributed to the intervention of law enforcement officers, specifically units from the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) and the Police Support Unit (PSU), who allegedly resorted to the use of live ammunition against the protesters.

The use of forceful methods by the authorities has sparked outrage and condemnation from human rights groups and community leaders alike. Many residents of Grand Cape Mount County have voiced their dismay over what they perceive as a disproportionate and unjust response to their peaceful demonstrations.

In light of the escalating tensions, calls for dialogue and mediation have been issued by concerned parties, urging both the Bea Mountain Mining Company and the local community to engage in constructive negotiations to address the underlying issues fueling the unrest.

Meanwhile, the government has pledged to investigate the reports of excessive use of force by law enforcement officers and ensure accountability for any wrongdoing. The Minister of Justice has assured the public that a thorough inquiry will be conducted to ascertain the facts surrounding the incident and hold those responsible accountable for their actions.
