The Benue Government has suspended all mining activities in the state until miners’ data has been compiled.
Gov. Hyacinth Alia gave the directive when he met with members of the Miners Association of Nigeria, Benue Chapter, in Makurdi.
He also directed the Mineral Resources and Environment Management Committee (MIREMCO) to immediately begin documenting the data of all miners in the state.
He said that the decision to conduct the revalidation exercise was due to reports of security threats.
He also frowned at the contamination of water sources for residents in the affected areas, especially in Kwande.
