The Council’s Public Relations Officer, PRO, Musbahu Yakasai, said this in a statement he signed and issued to newsmen on Thursday in Kano.

While sealing off the two areas, the Acting-Managing Director of the council, Baffa Dan-Agundi, said it was necessary after some of their employees tested positive for Hepatitis B.

Mr Dan-Agundi was represented by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Kano Road Traffic Agency, KAROTA, Nasiru Na’ibawa.

He explained that the action was taken to curtail the spread of Hepatitis B, especially among the customers of the two facilities.
