The Emir of Karaye, Ibrahim Abubakar, has urged residents of the Kano emirate to report the movement of illegal miners into the area from Zamfara, according to the spokesperson of the emirate council, Haruna Gunduwawa on Saturday.
The Nigerian government had banned illegal mining in Zamfara, which it linked to banditry in the state.
There have been suspicions that criminality ii the North-west is a fallout of the artisanal mining of gold, lead and other mineral resources in the region.
Meanwhile, Gunduwawa also said the emirate council has also applauded Gwarzo local government (under Karaye Emirate) for introducing registration for migrants in an effort to ensure maximum security in the locality.
“The traditional council’s meeting which is the second in this year, has strongly charged other local governments in the Emirate to imbibe the initiative for enhancement of security services in their respective domains.
