Soludo demolishes multi-million naira building constructed on govt land
By Ifeizu Joe
Anambra State government, led by Prof Chukwuma Soludo has demolished a multi-million naira building constructed on a land said to belong to the state government.
The building was pulled down on Saturday by the Awka Capital Territory Development Agency, ACTDA.
Mr Ossy Onuko, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of ACTDA who led the demolition team to the site at Isuaniocha, Awka North Local Government Area said the administration of Prof Soludo would not tolerate land grabbers.
He said: “The Solution Agenda of Anambra State has no room for land grabbers.”
The demolished building was a two storey affair, which housed six three bedroom flats, and had just been completed. The ACTDA boss said the structure was illegally built.
THE RAZOR gathered that the land on which the structure was built, belonged to the Catholic Diocese of Awka, and had been subject of unrest in the community, as some members of the community sold the parcel of land to interested individuals, who were oblivious of the original ownership.
But Onuko, while pulling down the structure warned those encroaching on government land to desist forthwith as the full weight of the law will befall them, no matter how heavy the loss on them will be.
