The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) said it demolished a portion of fence, a gate house, and a gate, belonging to the management Daar Communications Plc, owners of AIT and Raypower, at its Asokoro district head office because of encroachment.

Briefing newsmen at the end of the demolition exercise in Abuja yesterday, coordinator of Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Tpl Umar Shuaibu stated that the structures were removed because they had encroached on some plots belonging to other people and the refusal by the management of DAAR Communications Plc to abide by the mutual agreement reached between it and the administration.

He maintained that the demolition was not intended to inflict any pain on the owners of the property, rather it was to enable other citizens have access to their properties.

The coordinator added that the removal of the structures is also a culmination of series of meetings between the management of DAAR Communications Plc and the Federal Capital Territory administration to end many years of misunderstanding.
