NSCDC Arrests 2 Suspects Over Illegal Mining.

Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Anambra State Command, has arrested two suspects for allegedly engaging in illegal mining activities in the state.

While parading the suspects on Wednesday in Awka, the NSCDC Commandant in the state, Olatunde Maku, said the suspects were arrested following credible intelligence.

Maku said his team arrested Madueke Akpuchukwu, 53, from Awomama in Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State and Chimezie Ezenduka, of No 4 Mekus Drive Federal Housing, Onitsha.

According to him, the suspects were arrested at Igbariam while conveying suspected 600 bags of solid mineral (Kaolin) without a relevant permit.

Maku said illegal mining had been prohibited in Anambra under Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s administration to block revenue leakage.
