This was contained in a communiqué issued by the Kupa Development Association (KUDA) at the end of its annual general meeting held in Lokoja jointly signed by its chairman, Board of Trustees, Amb. Adamu A. Isa, Abdulmalik Saidu (President) and Abdulkadir Usman Yakubu (Secretary).

The association said illegal mining in the area was already attracting people of questionable characters who often carried sophisticated weapons to the community, adding that the situation had left the residents in perpetual fear.
