  • Niger govt arrests nursing mothers, teenagers at illegal mining sites.
  • Minna— The Niger State government has carried out raids on some of the illegal mining sites across the state where many of the erring miners were arrested.

    Top on the list of those arrested include aged women, nursing mothers, their kids and children of school age.

    “The areas raided were suspected of engaging in unauthorised mining activities by some suspected artisanal miners and as a result, a significant number of women, men, and even children were taken into custody.”

    “However, because of the vulnerability of the women, especially those who are nursing mothers and the elderly among them, a compassionate decision was made to promptly release them.”
