“The new interim task-force has Dr Odey Oyama as chairman with the 18 Heads of Local Government Administration (HOLGA) as members.

“It should be noted that any HOLGA that allows illegally logged woods to pass through his or her local government area, faces termination from the local government service,” he said.

NAN reports that the former interim anti-deforestation task-force, team which served for over four months, was headed by Mrs Florence Inyang as Chairman with other members.
