The authorities of Bayero University, Kano, have raised an alarm over what it called frequent encroachment of the university’s land by some people in the state.
The chairman of the university’s land implementation committee, who doubles as the Deputy Vice-chancellor, Administration of the university, Adamu Tanko stated this during a media briefing held at the university on Monday.
Mr Tanko, recalled that the land which was acquired decades ago by the federal government, was adequately compensated by the university at that time.
He noted that all the necessary documents regarding the details of compensation paid to landowners were available to the university.
According to him, any person who was in doubt could come forward with documents for verification.
The chairman, who expressed dismay over the development, cautioned the general public to avoid illegal land transactions on the university’s land by unaccredited land dealers, saying whoever does so would have himself to blame.
