The Department of Development Control, which is a section in the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) on Wednesday, demolished 25 houses in Kyami District, within the capital city.
Malam Muktar Galadima, the Director of the Department, led the demolition team to carry out the work and while speaking to newsmen, he said the FCTA would not condone land racketeering and grabbing.
Galadima stated that the administration was determined to ensure correction of all infractions and abuses of the Abuja Master Plan.
According to him, “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 that estate (Destiny Estate) alone, it’s a continuous exercise and we will remove all illegal structures across the territory.
“So, what you see here is a continuation of the exercise in tackling the issue of land racketeers and land grabbers in Abuja,” NAN quoted him as saying.
He went further to advise the public to always ensure compliance and obey the rules and regulations guiding developments in the nation’s capital.
