Like the Nigerian elders will say “Wonders shall never end”; it would surprise you that some people actually built houses on railway lines in Abuja. Yes, a new report reaching us claim that the FCTA recently destroyed 100 illegal houses blocking a road construction leading to an Abuja train station. These houses were said to have been built on an important road and also on a railway line in the Karon-Majigi area of Abuja.
The Federal Capital Territory Administration recently demolished 100 illegal structures obstructing a road and railway line
According to media reports, the illegal structures were blocking a road construction project leading to the Kukwaba (II) train station in the Karon-Majigi area of Abuja. The demolishing exercise was led by Ikharo Attah, an SSA Designate to the FCT Minister. He disclosed that the Kukwaba railway station has actually been complete a long time ago. Yes, he claimed that the occupants of those illegal houses refused to leave the area all this while. This arrogant stance of the occupants became yet another bottleneck for a road construction project in that same area as well.
