The Governor said major streets in the metropolis had been lit up after eight years of darkness.
Governor Yusuf Abba has approved the formation of mobile courts to ensure prompt prosecution of phone snatchers in Kano State.
A statement by his Press Secretary, Alhaji Bature Tofa, said that the mobile courts would work with the Special Joint Task Force to try people caught.
Yusuf said that major streets in the metropolis had been lit up after eight years of darkness as the lamps were switched off.
“The return of street lights is part of the efforts by the new administration to tackle robbery, phone snatching and other criminal activities, especially in metropolitan Kano.
“The ongoing exercise started penultimate Tuesday and will continue until every part of the state is saved from darkness that provides cover for criminals and political thugs,” he said.
