Tin mining was an enormous source of wealth that brought about commerce and the convergence of diverse ethnic groups who came to live in Jos, a city in the North Central of Nigeria when tin mining was booming.

When the mines were abandoned, the areas were unusable because many new land features of excavated mine lakes/ponds, artificial mount hills and wasteland areas emerged being also destroyed by erosion.

Maxwell Davwet describes in his book the development in the township and suburban areas leading to increase in population and criminality, tragedy, religious, political, and ethnic mistrust, and conflicts as captured in the story of Wahala, Mr King and Madam Faith.
