A pioneer rapper in the Nigerian music industry has come out to express his reservations concerning the recent killings that have been going in Zamfara state.
The rap legend identified as Eedris AbdulKareem spoke on the violence and killings that have been reported in the state, which is fueled by the mining of gold and lead.
Sharing a photo post of a mine in the state, the rapper explained in his caption that a lot of Nigerians own shops in Dubai, with most of them involved in supplying gold in the country.
He called on the necessary authorities to go after the middle men who are in charge of supplying, adding that he hopes some political figures are among those that will be accosted.

Speaking further in the comment section of his post, the rapper noted that the mining business should not pose such a problem, but the illegality of the way it is being run, is responsible for fueling crisis.
He concluded by noting that what is happening in the state is a case of illegal mining in which some cartels are making millions of money off the blood of innocent people. He made a reference to the 2006 hit movie Blood Diamond, saying that a real life scenario of what happened in the movie, is what is being re-enacted in the state.
