The Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf in the early hours of Saturday commenced the demolition of buildings on public lands, which he termed illegal.

Already, a 3-storey building with 90 shops on a race course by Filing Sukuwa, Nasarawa GRA, was brought down around 2.00am on Saturday, becoming the first victim of the demolition campaign.

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, an Engineer by Profession, to show his commitment to the demolition exercise, led the removal of the illegal building accompanied by the State Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Gumel.

It could be recalled that Abba Kabir Yusuf shortly after being declared governor-elect, threatened to demolish buildings in the state on public properties.

This is the first demolition carried out after assuming office on Monday, May 29th.

Also, on Friday, the governor directed the developer carrying out construction works at the Hajj Camp to stop ongoing construction.

All those who erected buildings on government lands or illegally acquired plots of land from the government are said to be jittery about the consequences of their actions.
