KDSG Bans Felling Of Trees For Timber, Firewood, Charcoal Other Commercial Purposes In Birnin Gwari, Igabi, Chikun, Giwa, Kachia, Kauru, Kajuru LGAs

In the over-riding public security interest arising from several security advisories, the Kaduna State Government has announced the suspension of cutting/felling of trees for timber, firewood, charcoal and other commercial purposes in Birnin Gwari, Chikun, Giwa, Kauru, Igabi, Kajuru and  Kachia local government areas with immediate effect. 

All questionable movements and activities within the thick forests across the seven listed LGAs, are also prohibited with immediate effect. 

Ahead of this announcement, the Government of Kaduna State had held a formal meeting with the leaderships of the following associations:

Firewood Sellers Association 
Timber Contractors 
Charcoal Sellers Association 

Citizens involved in these activities are therefore strongly advised to comply as vigorous enforcement will be ensured by security agencies.
