The group of young men who were spotted in a viral video with guns has cried that the recent wind blowing around them is having a negative impact on their lives.
In a video intercepted by www.alreadyviral.com, their leader, known as Obour Belling said they are not criminals as alleged by the media but galamsey miners.
He continued that aside from the illegal mining they do, they do no other thing, talk more of engaging in a robbery.
He claimed that a subsequent video that saw them invoking curses on bloggers and rumor mongers for accusing them falsely was an attempt to clear their names of any wrongdoing.
Obour said that following the issue, their girlfriends have parted ways with them because they have consumed the information the media has speculated.
