Anambra State Government Begins Demolition Of Illegal Structures by nghubs1(m): 11:01am On Jan 11
Anambra State government yesterday commenced demolition of illegal structures allegedly used by criminals and prostitutes at toll gate axis of Onitsha-Enugu, Express way.



This followed a directives given by Governor Willie Obiano to Physical Planning Board, Head of Development Control, Army, Police, Ocha Brigade among others, to rid the state of all illegal structures and shanties that provide hiding place for Criminals or Promote anti-social activities across the state.

The illegal structures whichb cut across both lanes of the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway of the toll gate axis Onitsha were alleged to be a criminal hide out and a place where prostitutes and other miscreants engage in nefarious activities.

According to the Security Adviser to the Governor, Chief Chikodi Anara, the occupants of the areas equally pollute and deface the areas with human waste and other materials.

Speaking on the demolition exercise, the General Manager Anambra State Physical Planning Board, Mrs Ngozi Atisele and the Head of Development Control, Awka Capital Authority, Mr. Victor Okpoko, explained that the shanties were removed for security reasons and called on people residing in shanties in Awka, Onitsha, Nnewi and other nooks and crannies of the State to pack out or relocate as government will no longer tolerate such structures in the state.

Some of the residents who spoke to ABS, Sunday Udeh, Vincent Akpu, Nwakasi Gabriel, Nnabuife Nwaonu and Chigbogu Eze, regretted that such acts occur in the place but appealed to the Governor to give them more time to relocate while others agreed that they will do the needful by building structures that will have approved plan as according to them, the area is the only place they get their livelihood.

The People,

The reason for the demolition is because it is 'ALLEGED' that the structures are used by criminals and prostitutes. The second reason is because occupants pollute and deface the areas with human wastes and other materials.

Simply put, the governor suddenly realize this after getting his second term dream. While I have no issue with demolitions and improvement, there should be a form of compensation to avoid total loss. Sadly, this won't happen. The ugu governor isn't that reasonable angry
