The Chairman of Kantin Kwari Market Traders Association, Kano, Alhaji Liti Kulkul, made the denial in an interview at Kano today, Thursday that speculations about Kano Market being closed were totally untrue as the market would opened for usual business activities.
‘’The market is not closed. Only the affected section of the market was closed by security agents to enable them carry out investigations” He said
‘’More so, the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II and Gov. Rabi’u Kwankwaso are expected to visit the scene of the incident, that is why that area is closed,’’ he added.
He urged customers visiting the market from within and outside the country to ignore the rumour as the market would continue to operate. The chairman also assured that the union and security agencies were collaborating to provide adequate security in the market.
