The FCT Administration has vowed to demolish all Estates developed illegally on waterways

The Coordinator,  Abuja Metropolitan Management Council ( AMMC), Shuaib Umar stated this during a stakeholders meeting with both Management and Resident Associations of Trademore Estate.

According to Umar by next week all houses on water ways would be pulled down.

Also, the Director of Department of Development Control, Muktar Galadima who led a demolition team to one of the erring Estates, in Lugbe District,  expressed dismay over the manner some developers violate building guidelines.

He also said that over 20 houses built along waterways at Trademore Estate and others would be demolished as scheduled, after the ultimatum given to them.

His Words:” Anything that would come after can be resolved. The first thing now is to save lives and property. All marked houses must be demolished” Galadima said.
