Officials unsealing the office complex housing the chamber of Nureini Jimoh, SAN

Kano state government on Thursday debunked reports of some media outlets that it sealed Barrister Nuraini’s office.

In a statement by Murtala Shehu Umar, Information officer, Kano State Bureau for Land Management said: “The state government sealed property belonging to Isiyaka Rabi’u & Sons at C14/C16 Murtala Muhammad way through its committee on Land Use Charges.”

The statement explained that “The committee issued a demand notice to the owner of the said property on the 14th September 2021 and also served him with a warning notice after a month reminding him to come and pay the outstanding ground rent that he did not pay from 2016 to 2021.”

The Information Officer in the signed statement revealed that “We sealed about 30 properties yesterday 1/12/2021 in different parts of the state such as properties at Zoo Road, Zaria road and Ibrahim Taiwo road.”

It further disclosed that “seven properties were sealed at Murtala Muhammad way who were served with demand and warning notice and are yet to respond. Therefore, the committee will continue to seal any property that his owner refuse to comply with the Land Use Act.”

Murtala Shehu Umar, therefore, explained that “As Land custodian, our record shows that property in plot C14/C16 belongs to Isiyaka Rabi’u & Sons, not Barrister Nuraini Jimo. Our concern is the owner of the property not who is renting the property.”

Kano State Bureau for Land Management, therefore, appealed to the property owners to come and settle their land charges.

It further clarified that the general public should note that there was nothing like politics in this matter.
