The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has said the recent social media video circulating on Tik Tok which purportedly shows the demolition of a plaza located on Lobito Crescent, Wuse II, in Abuja is two years old.

A statement by Anthony Ogunleye, the Director of Press in the FCT Minister’s office noted that the video in question was a deliberate attempt to spread misinformation and create unnecessary panic among residents.

The statement said the video which is being passed as a recent development was recorded in 2021 and the building featured was not demolished.

“The FCTA wishes to clarify that, instead of demolition, the Department of Development Control identified an infraction related to the building’s use. Subsequently, appropriate measures were taken to address the issue responsibly.

“Contrary to the claims made in the video, the building was not brought down.  Rather, the contravening portion was removed to ensure compliance with regulations.

“We assure residents that the FCTA remains committed to transparent communication and responsible governance. We encourage the public to verify information from reliable sources before spreading it further,” the statement said.
