Hundreds of residents of Zamfara State has stormed a site where raw gold was found to pack as much as they can for mining.
The residents gathered around the site covered with clay soil with bags to collect as much as they can.
Reacting to video, many complained about the privileges given to the Northerners on their resources, saying if it was in the South, men of the Nigerian police force would have surrounded the area and even arrest those who engaged in the act.
