FCT Demolishes Commercial Buildings In Abuja For Obstructing Traffic

Some commercial buildings and an alleged illegal fence erected by a bank have been demolished by the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Ministerial Task Team on Traffic Control on Sunday, November 3rd at Dutse-Alhaji after the expiration of a 72-hour ultimatum.

It was learnt that some parts of the perimeter fence of the bank and some commercial buildings located by the roadside on the busy Dutse-Alhaji axis connecting Bwari and other adjoining towns to the city centre were pulled down by bulldozers.

It was gathered that the bulldozers also dismantled several makeshift structures within a shanty on the street, just behind the commercial properties to ensure owners easily access their plots. Equally, cement and wood dealers who were allegedly trading illegally in the street were also cleared.

While speaking to journalists during the exercise on Sunday in Abuja, the Chairman of the task team, Ikharo Attah affirmed the determination of the FCT administration to rid the city of traffic congestion.

Attah directed the bank and the occupant of the commercial buildings to use their approved entrance point which was in street behind. He also directed property owners in the area to close their current entrance, which was a violation of the approved building plan.

“What happened here is a distortion of the approved land use. The entrance of the commercial property are contributing immensely to the traffic bottleneck on the Dutse-Alhaji to Bwari road.”
