Oyo govt. to takeover suspected illegal mining factory in Ib

Oyo State government has expressed it readiness to takeover suspected Chinese illegal mining factory at Idi Ayunre, Oluyole local government, along Ibadan-Ogun Expressway.

Governor Seyi Makinde stated this during a visit to the site.

The governor noted that the Chinese Company was registered by the federal government for car tyre recycling and battery crushing, but was suspected to have been dealing in Lithium production.

Governor Makinde said such an act violates the recently signed executive order against handling of harmful substances and illegal mining in the state.

He also said that the workers caught on site have been taken to the police custody while investigations continue.
