The Kaduna State Government on Wednesday began the demolition of houses, built on the lands of state-owned schools.
No fewer than 32 illegal buildings and structures were demolished within the premises of Alhudahuda College.
This, according the state governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, is part of government’s efforts to recover government lands in the state.
The General Manager, Kaduna State Urban Development Authority, Mrs. Saratu Hassan, supervised the recovery and demolition exercise.
She said at the Alhudahuda College that 32 houses were affected in the demolition exercise carried out in the college.
Hassan added that the state government did not pledge any compensation for owners of the illegal houses within the premises of the government schools and hospitals.
She, however, said government would not reverse its decision in respect of illegal structures on school premises and other government lands.
She explained that after the team was done with schools, they would move to other places in other parts of the state.
