The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) on Monday, demolished a multimillion naira duplex built on plot 226, in Wuse Zone 6, an unapproved land.
This was made known by the Director, Department of Development Control, Mr Mukhtar Galadima.
Galadima said that the building was illegally developed against all warnings, adding that his team had carried out extensive investigation to ascertain the original owner of the plot, given varying claims that were being put forth by the parties.
According to him, investigation revealed that the developer was not the owner of the plot, adding,”that is why we had to remove the building.”
He said the FCT Administration will not consider the status of any defaulting developer once development rules and regulations are violated.
Galadima said: “We demolished the duplex because somebody built it on someone else’s land without valid title and building plan approval.”
“We allowed the building to this stage before demolishing it because we had to follow all due processes,” he said as quoted by NAN.
