Borno: Governor Zulum revokes land abandoned by Railway Corporation

Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has revoked a land title belonging to the Nigerian Railway Corporation over acts of immorality and criminality taking place in the building located on the land.

The governor also ordered the demolition of all brothels within Bayan Quarters Area Railway Station Maiduguri within 72 hours.

 According to a statement by the governor’s spokesman, Isah Gusau, the illegal structures serve as a den for prostitution, gangsterism and other illicit activities.

“Zulum gave the directive during a visit to the scene at ‘Bayan Quarters’, a settlement around railway staff quarters, in Maiduguri,” the statement partly read.

“The area harbours gangsters, criminal activities and minors for commercial sex activities.

“The governor expressed concern over the rise in criminal activities associated with these illegal brothels and criminal dens, including prostitution, drug peddling, and other illicit operations.”

Quoting the governor, Isah said that these activities not only pose a threat to the security of the state but also perpetuate social vices that undermine the well-being of communities and the dignity of the individuals involved.

“The government has been duly informed of the activities that are going on here, this settlement is completely illegal. People are killed here; this place serves as a breeding space for insurgents. Therefore, I have directed that everybody should vacate the place,” the statement added.
