Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said his administration is set to prosecute

and punish anyone found encroaching on the state’s forest reserve, especially Ogba Zoological Garden in Ogba Community of the state.

He made this known while receiving the management and staff of Forest Research Institute of Nigeria (FRIN), led by the Executive Director, Adeshola Adepoju, on a courtesy visit to the Edo State Government House in Benin City, the Edo State Capital.

Obaseki said his government would focus on reviving the forest reserve in the state because it is the heritage of the people, and his administration is set to draft a bill, which would be sent to the Edo State House of Assembly (ESHA), to institutionalise a Forest Commission, which the state is prepared to set up to revive forest reserves in the state.
