U-Turn: Gov. Ayade Has Not Lifted Ban On Wood Logging

In Breaking News, Crime, Reports

By Patrick Obia and Andy Ukweni

As earlier reported, the Government of Cross River State has refuted claims Governor Ayade has lifted the embargo placed on wood logging in the State.

This was debunked in a press release issued on Friday by the Deputy Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Linus Obogo, and the Chairman, Cross River State Anti Deforestation Taskforce, Mr. Agan Modey, reiterating that the ban remains enforced.

He warned illegal loggers to stay off the forest as anybody caught in the act will not just be arrested but will be prosecuted.

Agan re-emphasized the State Governor’s resolve to safeguard the State rainforest reserve as clearly demonstrated in recent appointments into the forestry cluster to help him monitor the activities of illegal loggers.

The release further called on members of the public to report the activities of timber loggers to the State task force office.
