Kano State government, in its effort to checkmate the movement of bandits fleeing from other states into its towns, has directed that no landed property (house 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 representatives.

This was just as the directive cautioned land agents not to violate the directive, and urged them to comply with it, adding that non-compliance would be construed as deliberate and calculated connivance and collaboration with criminal elements to subvert the prevailing peace and security in the state.

In a statement signed by the Press Secretary to the SSG, Alhaji Musa Tanko Muhammad, on Friday, disclosed that the directive was part of the government’s effort to safeguard the lives and property of the people of Kano.

He, however, noted that the directive was necessary in order to sustain military operations against bandits and other criminal elements in many parts of the country.

Alhaji Muhammad explained that the move was in line with the commitment of the federal government to end insurgency and banditry in some parts of the country, as the operations may compel criminal elements to look for safe havens in neighbouring states, including Kano State.

He said, “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.

His words: “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.”
