The Federal Capital Territory Administration FCTA, has vowed to maintain the demolition of illegal structures, market and shanties built on the rail corridor in Gwarinpa.

“This is as the joint task team comprising FCTA Senior officials, Nigerian Army, Nigeria Police Force (NPF), Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Nigerian Immigration Service, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Department of State Services (DSS), Directorate of Road Traffic Services, and Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB), on Friday stormed the rail corridor in Gwarinpa area of Abuja unannounced to commence demolition of shanties, market and butchers defacing the satellite town, arresting criminals too in the process.

Ikharo Attah, “Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement to the FCT Minister after clean up exercise at Gwarinpa, on Friday in Abuja said the joint task force team not only cleared the shanties but also burnt to ashes to prevent a comeback of the illegal structures and market.

He said: “We are here for several reasons, the first one is that there have been a series of complaints over this place.

“The Police Commissioner, Sunday Babaji and Police DPO in Gwarimpa have gotten reports of criminal activities going on here, residents have complained very bitterly of persons trying to hide here as cover to rob neighbourhoods and that has been very alarming.

“Today, some arrests were made of people carrying illicit drugs and were arrested by the NDLEA of the Command and Control JTF team under the CP of FCT and the DC Bernard Iwe,” Attah said.
