Kano prohibits unauthorised sale, renting of houses over insecurity


The Kano state government says no property should be sold or rented out to any individual or group until there is clearance given by a district head or his representatives.

The directive was in a statement issued by Musa Tanko Muhammad, press secretary to Usman Alhaji, Kano secretary to the state government (SSG).Muhammad said the measure is to keep the lives and property of Kano residents safe.With this measure, the press secretary said criminals will not be able to look for safe havens in Kano after they have been flushed out of the north-east and parts of the north-west.

“Government has directed that no house, property or land should be rented out or sold to any individual or group without prior due reference to and clearance by the district head or his accredited representative,” he said.“This directive is a sequel to the sustained military operations against bandits and other criminal elements in many parts of the country in line with the commitment of the federal government to end insurgency and banditry in some parts of the country, thereby compelling these criminal elements to reportedly look for safe havens in other neighbouring states, including Kano state.”
