The Federal Capital Territory Administration on Monday demolished a multimillion-naira duplex located at Plot 226 Cadastral Zone, A02 Wuse 1, Wuse Zone 6 District, for building on an unapproved plot of land.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja on Monday, the Director, Department of Development Control, Mukhtar Galadima, noted that the building was said to belong to the late Alake of Egba Land, Oba Oye Lipede.

Galadima said, “We demolished the duplex because somebody built without a valid title and building plan approval on someone else land. Investigation revealed that the developer is not the owner of the plot, which is why we had to remove the building.

“We allowed the building to this stage before demolishing it, because we had to follow all the processes. He was served all the notices to stop work, but being a recalcitrant developer, he continued without heeding the notices we served.

“After our investigation, we ascertained the original allottee, so we have to remove it. We are going to consult the legal department to know the next action against the developer.”
