On Wednesday March 17th, Sahara Reporters made a report that Hisbah had visited some beer parlours in Kano State and destroyed beer parlours, and went away with television sets and refrigerators.

The report said that the destruction was carried out with support from Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and some police officers in the area. The action was carried out last Friday, and the owners of the beer parlours claimed that the losses they suffered ran into millions of naira.

One of the beer distributors in the area claimed that Kano State Government alongside some police officers and the Hisbah corps stormed Badawa Layout, Agangara, Kano State, and destroyed beer parlours in the area, and also carted away television sets and refrigerators that they saw in those shops.

A source who spoke to Sahara Reporters about the incident said that the owners of those shops said that the losses they suffered runs into millions. He said the state governor went there with some police officers and Hisbah corps, that the only force they did not go there with was the Nigerian Army.

He said that one of the affected shop owners known as Hillary Okafor, popularly known as Larry White in the area has said that he will be relocating to the East to start life afresh, because there is nothing left for him in the North again. The source said that Larry White is his friend, and that when the state governor went there with the security operatives, they carted away everything, and he has nothing left now, and it was from that business that he was feeding his family.

He said that when the people came to Okafor's shop, they broke into the place and destroyed his goods, and carted away some items, including his refrigerator, generator and television set.

The source said that the authorities are really dealing with non-indigenes in Kano State, and called on the government to come to their aid.

The reports of the destruction enraged many Nigerians, and one of those who was provoked by the report is popular activist, Aisha Yesufu.

She described the destruction as economic terrorism, and said that Kano State Government should be sued for what they did. She added that since they don't want alcohol to be sold in their state, then they should stop accepting any proceeds from alcohol in their own allocation.

Well, whether those shop owners will have the wherewithal to sue the Kano State Government is another thing. But quite frankly, those people whose shops were destroyed would now be left in a malaise without knowing how they are going to pick up their lives again. And one is even saying that he will return to the East because everything he had has been destroyed. This is sad indeed.

What do you think about this action from the Kano State Government? Do you support what Aisha Yesufu said that those people should sue the state government? Tell us your mind, and also share the article so that others can contribute too.
