Chinese Firm Slammed for Alleged Land Grabs In North Nigeria

Farmers in the north of the country feel hard-done-by since losing their land to Chinese firm Lee Enterprises, largely for the building of factories. The land-grab scuffle started four years ago, with over 2,000 farms belonging to 1,200 farmers, all of which sit on about 12,000 hectares of land. Farmers are accusing chiefs and state officials of collusion with the company, writes Bakare Majeed for Premium Times.
