APC's newly sworn-in Governor Orders Demolition of Police Station

The newly sworn-in Governor of Niger state, Umaru Mohammed Bago, has caused some controversy by announcing his intention to demolish the Chanchaga police station in Minna, the state capital.

Bago, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), made the announcement during his inaugural speech at the trade fair complex in Minna on May 29th.

He stated that the police station obstructed the water pipeline and therefore, it would be marked for demolition after the inaugural ceremony.

Bago emphasized his commitment to fighting insecurity in the state and ensuring the protection of lives and property.

“Priority will be given to portable drinking water, as we leave this venue, we have a police station sitting on our water pipeline, we will mark it for demolition because we must provide portable drinking water for our people”.

The statement has caused concern among some residents, who fear that the demolition of the police station could lead to an increase in crime.
