Kano govt denies sealing Counsel to Rep member’s office


The Kano State Bureau for Land Management has debunked reports that the state government sealed Barrister Nuraini’s office, Counsel to the House of Representatives member, Shaaban Ibrahim Sharada.

He said the office sealed, did not in any way belong to Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim, SAN but is owned by late Sheikh Isiyaku Rabiu, Father to Billionaire AbduSamad Isiyaku Rabiu.

“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 Public Relationship officer of the Bureau, Murtala Shehu, said, “a committee issued a demand notice to the owner of the said property on the 14th of September 2021 and also served him with a warning notice after a month reminding him to pay the outstanding ground rent that he did not pay from 2016 to 2021.”

“We sealed about 30 properties yesterday 1/12/2021 in different parts of the state such as properties at the Zoo Road, Zaria road and Ibrahim Taiwo road.

Also, seven properties were sealed at Murtala Muhammad way who were served with a demand and warning notice and are yet to respond. Therefore, the committee will continue to seal other properties whose owners refuse to comply with the Land use act.

”As land custodians, 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.


”Based on this development Kano State Bureau for Land Management is appealing to the property owners to come and settle their land charges.

“Once again it should be noted that there is nothing like politics in this matter
