Kogi State Bans Mining Activities

Kogi State Government has banned illegal mining activities across the state.

The ban follows the death of two people, Attah and Amodu, on Saturday at an illegal mining site at Ika-Ogboyaga, Ankpa Local Government Area of the State when a portion of a mining bed caved in.

Kogi State Commissioner for Solid Minerals and Natural Resources, Bashiru Gegu, has directed that henceforth all operators should register with his Mministry.

He said failure to adhere to the directive, the State Government would clamp down on the mining operators.

Kogi State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), says it has begun investigation into the collapsed site.
