Abuja Task Force demolishes Fulani settlement

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) Joint Task Force (JTF), has demolished Fulani settlement near the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

The development was revealed by Ikharo Attah, Chairman, FCT Ministerial Committee on City Sanitation, on Sunday in Abuja. He said the Ruga settlement contravenes sanitation regulations.

He explained that the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello, had expressed displeasure over the continuing contravention on in and out-bounds of the roads.

Mr Attah stressed that the airport road was a major gateway to the city centre of the nation’s capital and therefore all occupants would have to comply with rules and regulations.

“The minister gave matching orders that the contraventions be removed. Since then, we have been collaborating with district heads of the affected areas, giving them notices and warning.

“We have actually given them two months and there is no compliance and that is why we have come to remove the contraventions,” Mr Attah said.
