Kano arraigns 144 sanitation offenders, generates N352,200

The Kano State Task Force on Environmental Sanitation realised N352,200 from fines imposed by mobile courts on 144 defaulters of the June edition of the monthly clean-up exercise in the state.
The Commissioner for Environment and Chairman of the task force, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, announced this on Saturday in Kano while monitoring the conduct of the exercise in the metropolis.
The defaulters were apprehended and tried for non-compliance and violation of the order on restriction on movement of people during the exercise.
Abbas told newsmen that the courts operated at 10 designated centres in the metropolis, adding that government would soon inaugurate the task force in each local government area to ensure proper compliance.
Also speaking, Malam Ibrahim Sulaiman, Chairman, Dala Local Government Area, said the council had engaged the services of self-help groups in the area to ensure compliance with the exercise.
A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria, who monitored the exercise in the metropolis, reports that public compliance was low as people showed indifference to the clean-up exercise.
