Arrest warrant issued for Chinese miners in Nigeria

The commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources in Zamfara state, Nigeria has issued an arrest warrant for Chinese miners operating illegally without the consent of the ministry.

The Chinese miners built a mining site in a village called Gwargawo in Maradun and have been excavating different solid minerals from about 10 farmlands. The miners have insisted they will only speak on the orders of the Emir of Maradun.

An Alhaji Aliyu Gusau who claims to be an agent to the company that brought the miners says that the authorities were fully aware of the Chinese miners.
