The Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, has vowed to demolish over 500 illegal structures at Dutsen-Garki in Apo District area of Abuja.

This was made known by the Director, FCTA Department of Development Control, Mukhtar Galadima, shortly after meeting with Dutsen-Garki natives.

He disclosed that most individuals acquired lands from the natives without approval from the FCT Administration.

Galadima, who spoke through the Deputy Director Monitoring and Enforcement, Hassan Ogbole, described the habit of the owners of those illegal structures as unacceptable, adding that the present leadership of FCDA would not accept any illegal structure.

”In line with the FCTA reform agenda, before we embark on any removal, we have to consult with the natives, so that we don’t take them unaware,” he said, adding that the department would use two weeks to mark the illegal structures before embarking on the full demolition exercise.
