Illegal mining: 4 dead as Mining site collapses in Bauchi
Four illegal miners lost their lives following the collapse of a mining site in Kogo Kadage village in the Yadagungume Area of Ningi Local Government Area of Bauchi State.
The incident reportedly happened on Saturday night while the miners were excavating lead.
The illegal miners had been working at the site for over a month before it collapsed on them, according to a community member who did not want his name published for fear of being attacked.
He claimed that the bodies of the illegal miners had been found beneath the debris.
Ibrahim Zubairu, the chairman of the caretaker committee for the Ningi LGA, described the incident as tragic.
“I received word on Saturday that four people were trapped in a mining pit, so I ordered their rescue. They later told me that they had found three bodies.
Because all forms of illegal mining have been outlawed throughout the local government area, he claimed, “I don’t know about the illegal activities of the locals. It surprised me when I got the report of the incident.”
In order to monitor illegal mining operations and land-related issues in the LGA, Zubairu claimed to have established a committee.
People were warned by Zubairu not to engage in illegal mining because the government would punish anyone caught.
