FCTA demolishes 25 houses in Abuja

NEWS DIGEST – The Federal Capital Territory Administration Department of Development Control on Wednesday demolished 25 houses in the Kyami District of Abuja.

This is happening barely one week after the department pulled down 102 houses built on waterways and flood plains in Gwagwalada.

The Director of the department, Malam Muktar Galadima, who led the exercise told newsmen that the FCTA would not condone land racketeering and grabbing.

He said that the administration was determined to correct all infractions and abuses of the Abuja master plan.

He stated, “The FCTA has already made it clear that the actions and activities of land racketeers cannot and will never be condoned.

“That is why we are removing all those illegal developments.

“About 25 solid structures were removed and this is not limited to Destiny Estate alone; it’s a continuous exercise and we will remove all illegal structures across the territory.”

Galadima advised the public to always ensure compliance and obey the rules and regulations guiding developments in the nation’s capital.
