Illegal mining ongoing Borno despite ban – NSCDC Published By: Paul Dada

The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), says it is on the trail of illegal miners in Borno who have been defying the ban on mining activities in the state.

Farouq Musa-Boyi, the NSCDC Commandant in the state, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Maiduguri.

He said most of the illegal mining occurs in Bayo Local Government Area of the state, where the unregistered artisans have caused environmental damage.

“There are several minerals in Borno which include Feldspar, Limestone, Kaolin, Potash, Iron-Ore, Quarts, Magnetite, Diatomite, Trona, Mica, Silica Sand, Gypsum, Granite, Flutters Earth and Uranium among others.

“As you are aware, Borno government has banned illegal miners in the state and warned defaulters of dire consequences.

  • Illegal mining: Kogi Govt bans issuance of consent letters to miners
  • Powerful Nigerians involved in illegal mining funding banditry, terrorism — Alake
  • 80 suspected illegal miners nabbed in Kwara

“Despite the ban, these illegal merchants continued to steal these resources with impunity,” he said.

According to him, the NSCDC will clamp down on the defualters and bring them to justice.
