The FCT Department of Development Control has served a 24-hour-demolition notice to operators of illegal markets and shanties along Karmo- Dei dei road corridor, with over 500 structures marked for demolition.

 Mr Garba Jibril, Sector Monitor and Assistant Director in the department, who led the exercise on Monday, said the affected owners had been served with several notices.

 Jibril added that the Director of Development Control, Mr. Mukhtar Galadima, had held a sensitisation meeting with the stakeholders, adding that the marked structures are constituting a nuisance on the road in addition to heavy traffic, especially on their market days.

 He added that their activities were equally emitting environmental hazards, which the FCT Administration frowns at.

The team leader also disclosed that the FCTA had awarded a contract for the construction of Life Camp – Dei-Dei road.

 He, however, said that the traders’ continuous stay on the road corridor was preventing the contractors from moving to the site.

 He warned that the 24-hour notice should not be played with as those who refused to comply will have themselves to blame.

 He also said that the traders have been asked to move to the designated market called Karmo Market, adding that the market was fully developed and equipped with necessary facilities.
