FCTA Demolishes Area 1 Mini-Market In Abuja

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), on Monday, demolished a mini-market allegedly operating illegally on a plot of land belonging to the National Council of Women Societies (NCWS), at Area 1.

Mr Ikharo Attah, the Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement to the FCT Minister, said this in Abuja after the demolition.

According to him,the demolition of all the illegal structures which constitute nuisance to the environment would bring about sanity in the area that had been converted to a mini-market against the Abuja Master Plan.

The activities on this single plot of land have become a serious issue; and the FCT Minister, Malam Mohammad Bello, directed that we should clear the place.

Attah said after the demolition, the owner of the land would decide on what to be done with the plot.

A customer who was at the scene, Charles Olili, said the place was the only nearby restaurant that its food was affordable, but that “the government had powers to decide what is good for the people.

It is a legal plot of land but has been turned into an illegal market, ’’he said.

Also, a trader, Rafat Mohammed, said she was worried because nowhere for her to start up.

This is worrying, where will I go and start? The government is supposed to provide an alternative place for us before the demolition,” she said.

One of the traders and a leader, Malam Ibrahim Lawal, who expressed anger over the incident, admitted that the FCT Administration gave them a notice of three months but it was not yet time.

I feel very bad because we were given three months but we are not up to the three months; we were following up the issue till late last week, the people that came told us that they were sent by the minister.”
