Ogun Government IMPOUNDS TIMBER LORRIES, TRACTOR, OTHERS Ogun State Government has seized two timber lorries loaded with logs, three felling machines, one tractor and a motorcycle used in illegal felling at the various State's forest reserve, while culprits were at large. Commissioner for Forestry, Tunji Akinosi, made this known while fielding questions from journalists in Abeokuta, confirming that the impounded items were at the State Secretariat, Oke- Mosan, Abeokuta. Akinosi said all items seized during illegal felling would be auctioned, adding that government had intensified monitoring in reserves to stamp out unwholesome activities. He said State's revenue being illegally taken out as flitches from the forests to neighbouring States would not be allowed to thrive. On the illegal bridge recently discovered in Alaagan, J4 Forest Reserve, the Commissioner said there were three official legal points of entry from the reserve into Ondo State, noting that it was wrong for people living in the enclaves to construct any bridge or road inside the forest reserve. He said that the motive behind the illegal bridge construction, was to steal woods and other forest resources and transport them through unofficial routes to Ondo and Osun States.
