Niger State Governor Mohammed Umaru Bago has revoked the certificate of occupancy of a filling station and ordered its demolition in Minna, the state capital.
The governor gave the directive when he inspected the filling station along Ketaren Gwari, in the Minna metropolis.
According to him, the structure was illegal and its location was not safe for the people of the area, insisting that he had earlier asked the owners to stop work.
He said: “We have a report of the illegal structure, and I have asked the Urban Development Board to stop them from working, but they continued, so we revoked the C of O from today, and we will mark it for demolition.”
Bago further insisted: “It’s uncalled for in the midst of people, it’s hazardous to their lives, and it’s not acceptable.”
