FCT Administration To Demolish 23 Houses

According to Olawale Ajimotokan of This Day, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mallam Mohammed Musa Bello, has approved the removal of 23 houses earlier marked for demolition at the Trade More Estate, Lugbe, along the International Airport corridor in the Abuja Municipal Area Council next week.

The Director General of FCT Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Alhaji Abbas Garba Idriss, announced this after a meeting with the association of residents of Trade More Estate, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC) and the Department of Development Control at the estate.

Idriss, who was represented by the Acting Director, Forecasting Response and Mitigation, FEMA, Mrs. Florence Wenegieme, said the affected properties were built on waterways that were constricting the water channels.

He blamed the perennial flooding at Trade More Estate on human induced activities, noting that the developer had allocated plots of land on waterways with development presently ongoing.
