By Aminu Ahmed Garko

Minna  –    The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps ( NSCDC) in Niger says it has arrested six illegal
gold miners in the state.

The State Commandant, Mr Philip Ayuba, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday that the suspects were arrested
on Mandela Road in Minna.

The suspects were apprehended while carrying out their illegal activities in residential areas along Mandela Road, he said.

According to him, the arrest became necessary because the miners failed to heed the warnings given by the residents that they
are not comfortable with the security threat posed to their lives by their activities.
