Ishaq Tanko Gambaga, vice chairman Dala local government says he has been receiving death threats since leading the demolition of illegal shops at Kofar Ruwa market.

KANO TODAY recalls that Gambaga led councillors and officials of the local government in demolition some shops built overnight in front of existing stalls on plots said to be allocated by the past administration of the council.

Gambaga told a delegation of traders’ associations operating in the Kofar Ruwa market that he has been receiving anonymous text messages threatening his life and those of members of his family.

He however assured the traders that he will not relent in serving the people of Dala as his life is in the hands of God, who will protect him from all his detractors.

The vice chairman also urged the traders to be law-abiding and ensure peaceful coexistence in order to promote the image of Dala local government among the people of Kano.

In his address, secretary of the delegation, Mustapha Maikudi said they support the council’s decision to demolish the illegal shops.

He said traders in the market will continue to be law-abiding citizens since the council is working to protect their interest.
