Chinese Loggers Inflicting Catastrophic Damage on Nigeria’s, Africa’s Forests

  • Africa-wide, the destructive behaviour of Chinese businessmen who use vulnerable and ill informed locals to carry out their dastardly acts behind the scenes, is now fully known.

In a recent video shared by a concerned X user, @SafaaMUAdam, Chinese trucks were captured exporting a shocking amount of cut-down trees from Nigeria. The footage, taken along the Obudu-Vandeikya road in Cross River State, reveals a troubling reality of widespread China led deforestation in the country.

The video alleges that these shipments are a weekly occurrence, raising serious questions about the impact on Nigeria’s precious forests. Environmentalists and local communities are expressing growing concern over the apparent collaboration between Chinese entities and the illegal logging trade.

Nigeria’s forests are renowned for their rich biodiversity and ecological significance. The destruction caused by China not only poses a threat to unique plant and animal species but also has severe consequences for local communities dependent on the forests for their livelihoods.

Environmental organizations are now calling for immediate action to address the issue including a review of international trade and visa exchange policy between China and NIgeria.
