Conservator General, National Park Service, Dr. Ibrahim Goni, Addresses Media On The Recent Joint Patrol At Kainji Lake National Park ~Omonaijablog



 




LADIES AND GENTLEMEN

 

Gentlemen of the press, this press conference is to brief the public on the outcome of the recent joint patrol carried out at the Kainji Lake National Park.


The nation’s premier National Park was established by the amalgamation of two former game reserves-Borgu and Zugurma with a total area of 5,340.82sq/kilomtres


It is a safe haven to some highly endangered species of wildlife and home to tourists.

On August 12 and 13, 2021 the Service Rangers in collaboration with security agencies and local vigilantes carried out a successful routine joint patrol at the park where a lot of bandits were neutralized and several illegal loggers arrested.


This activity is often carried out with personnel of these agencies with the aim to nip in the bud any suspected criminal activities.


 About twenty (20) number of illegal loggers who had different sizes of trucks, some articulated trucks, loaded with timber were arrested by the joint patrol team.


Trespassers will eventually be prosecuted in accordance with the laws of the land.


The collaborative efforts paying off and will effectively degrade the activities of bandits and other criminal elements within our Parks and the surrounding communities.


These collaborations, which are a continuing exercise, would help to speedily restore peace and stability at our Parks, the host communities and Nigeria as a whole.


It is worthy to note that this operation was successful because of the vital information shared to the Service and which is a crucial role every person in Nigeria should play.

It is pivotal in decisively checking the activities of criminals.


The Park, just like other forest reserves, has challenges such as illegal poaching, grazing, logging and fishing, and we have remained committed to attaining the desired status of a tourist destination for legal visitors.


We will always evaluate, re-strategise and reinvigorate our ongoing operations to stem the tide of growing security threats around the Parks and adjoining communities.
 

I appreciate the Army, Police, DSS, Civil Defence, the vigilante and indeed the people of Borgu Emirate for their support and cooperation.


I thank them all for their sacrifices and dedication toward curtailing banditry and other security challenges bedeviling our Parks.


We, therefore, call for continuous support from our host communities in this fight against illegal activities at our Parks and their environs.


I urge Nigerians not to rest on their oars until normalcy is completely restored to our dear country.


The Management of the Park is fully aware of the security situation of the areas within our legal jurisdiction and as such, we are closing ranks with other relevant stakeholders to curb the daunting challenges associated with our operations.


I want to assure the public that the management of the Park will continue to strive very hard to keep the sanity and integrity of our Parks through our numerous strategies and modus operandi.
