Land speculators have been warned to desist from encroaching into the government-acquired area following the construction of Baro Port in Niger state.
Baro Port’s Director General, Engr. Muhammad Abubakar Muregi handed the warning in an interview in Minna recently.
He said work on the construction of the port and the dredging of its river had given rise to the activities of land speculators in the area, adding that landowners were being enticed with cash to dispose their property by speculators.
He said the speculators were also encroaching into the government-acquired land, warning that any speculator trespassing into government property would be decisively dealt with.
“We want to sound a note of warning that government would not threaten a trespass into its acquired property with kid gloves,” he warned.
