The Kano State Consumer Protection Council (KSCPC) has sealed off a restaurant and suya (kebab) spot in the Kano metropolis to curtail the spread of Hepatitis B.
The Council’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr Musbahu Yakasai, said this in a statement made available 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 to Hepatitis B.
Dan-Agundi was represented by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Kano Road Traffic Agency (KAROTA), Nasiru Na’ibawa.
