The Kano state Government on Wednesday unsealed a 6 storey office complex that accommodates the chamber of Nureini Jimoh, a lawyer who won a case against the APC over the conduct of ward congresses.
Recall that on Wednesday morning some officials of the Kano State Internal Revenue service acting on the alleged order of the permanent secretary, Bureau for Land Management, Hajia Zainab Buraji sealed the place over alleged non payment of ground rate to the tune of over N3 billion.
