Osun State Government, on Sunday announced the arrest of 27 illegal miners in the state.

Abdullahi Binuyo, the Deputy Chief of Staff to Governor Gboyega Oyetola revealed that the suspects comprised of 17 Chinese nationals and 10 Nigerians.

According to him, the suspects were arrested following a coordinated sting operation in Ilesa and Ife areas of the State.

“As part of the government’s economic reforms, solid mineral is a major sector we are exploring. For these reforms to work, it has become imperative to stop illegal mining and step up enforcement activities. The result is what we are witnessing today.



“These people neither have genuine mining licenses nor are they registered with the government.

“What they claim to have is Exploration Licences; that does not permit them to mine the way they are doing.

“So, we will prosecute them and make them pay damages.

“Apart from flouting government’s order to stay at home so as to contain the spread of COVID-19, they have created an environmental disaster for us by poisoning our river which is a major public health concern,”
