‘Most Chinese in Taraba have no passports’ — Governor Darius

Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State has revealed that most Chinese doing business in Taraba State have no passports and other documents.

He said Chinese are in the business of wood and are destroying forest reserves in the state.

He made the revelation while addressing 49 Third Class chiefs in his office on Wednesday.

Ishaku said he had earlier warned against cutting Madrid trees, which are expensive and available in the state.

He said the Chinese people working with their agents are cutting trees and taking them to China without due process.

Ishaku warned the royal fathers against the illegal allocation of lands to strange people and foreign investors, saying such practice undermined the security of the state.

He said “You can’t be allowed into China without passports, but the Chinese are in Taraba State making business without passports and other legal documents.”
