Insecurity: FCTA Reclaims Law School’s Land, Bwari Road Corridors



The officials of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA)  has reclaimed part of the Nigeria Law school’s land taken over by proponents of ill activities in Bwari Area .

Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement to the Minister of FCT,  Ikharo Attah, after the clean up exercise on Thursday, said pulling down of the shanties was also to tighten security and restore sanity on the route.

He said the exercise was 

 one of the measures adopted  by the administration to curb insecurity across the territory and would not be limited to one area.

The Minister’s aide  explained that strategic stakeholders in the nation’s capital have asked the sanitation team not to leave any structure that was constituting threats to security of lives and property on the Bwari Road stretch.

Attah stated that key security heads in the territory had insisted that Bwari area must be made safe and  free from all evil acts.

According to him, the demolition exercise was going to be a comprehensive one, started from Bwari Law school, near Kuchiku-Bwari down to Bwari main market.

He said the exercise affected only shanties on the road corridor, and not houses.

“Pulling down of the illegal structures here in Bwari is part of our measures to curb insecurity across the territory.

“This area along the law school stretch down to Bwari market, all the attachments and shanties on the road corridor must go. Some persons in Bwari may see it as a lawless place because for long there is no major clean up.

“It is not only the Law  school area but is going to be a comprehensive clean up” 

On his part, the secretary FCTA Command and Control Centre, Peter Olumuji  said the operation is a  means of sustaining the security measures already put  in place by police and the FCT Administration.

He explained that prior to the removal of the shanties, the areas were used as criminals’ hideout.
