Some Welders and scrap dealers have been caught cutting and removing railway sleepers and tracks at Twifo Nuamakrom in the Central Region.
The railway lines pass through Twifo Nuamakrom from Huni Valley through Assin Fosu to Adjen Kotoku in the Greater Accra Region.
The scrap dealers according to the Chief of Nuamakrom in the Ati-Morkwaa Traditional Area, Nana Akrofi Koram, use gas welding machines and hacksaw in cutting and removing the railway sleepers and tracks.
The suspects load the railway lines onto a tricycle (Aboboyaa) and take them away.
"They cut, remove and melt them to sell," Nana Akrofi Koram disclosed in an interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM's 'kokrokoo' programme Tuesday Morning.
"The whole of Monday they were cutting them, we call the police and immediately they leave they come back . . ." he said.
