Amos Dambaba Galadima from Niger state said he has been in Osun state since 1992 and started this illegal Mining since 2013. He said “we are doing illegal job because the government knows we don’t have job so that why we are doing mining job to feed our family”.

The suspect claimed if he is charged to court and he’s questioned,he will tell them to give him job that if he has a good job he will stop the illegal Mining job. Amos pleaded not to be charged to court because of his family.
