According to him, the mining site is located along the Gadan Zama-Zuru Road in the Bukuyyum Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

He said the mining site served as a hideout for bandits, while money realised from mining activities being carried out there was used to finance banditry.

Onyeuko stated, “On August 23, 2020, troops conducted a well-coordinated intelligence-based operation, leading to the raid of an illegal mining site located along the Gadan Zaima-Zuru Road in the Bukuyyum Local Government Area of Zamfara State, which also serves as a bandits’ hideout. During the operation, troops arrested 150 suspects and recovered 20 locally-fabricated Dane guns.

“One of the suspects was neutralised, while trying to escape. Preliminary investigation reveals that aside sabotaging the nation’s economy, banditry is being financed through these illegal mining activities.”
