Tension in Kaduna as Some Settlements are Marked for demolishing
Some settlements within Kaduna metropolis seem to be living on borrowed terms following the trends of demolition by the Kaduna State Urban Planning Development Agency (KASUPDA).
The destruction is said to be a warning signal to an impending demolition of the houses said to have been illegally built on layouts belonging to the state government.
A visit to Karji revealed that some of the destroyed houses have either been completed and are being occupied or about to be occupied, while others are still under construction.
The development has unsettled residents of the areas who are apprehensive and having sleepless night over impending demolition, which will not only lead to monumental losses, but render them homeless.
In recent time, a Kaduna State High Court presided over by Justice Binta Zubairu granted a restraining order against Governor Nasir El-Rufai or any government agents from demolishing the popularly known Nisi and Tasu communities of Chikun local government area of Kaduna State where over 2,000 houses were marked to be demolished.
The Controversy raged after the popular and historical Kaduna Durbar hotel goes down with mixed reactions from the indigenes of the state.
Mr Nuhu Garba, the Public Relations Officer of the Kaduna State Urban Development Authority (KASUPDA) says that the reason for the demolition in Kaduna is in accordance with Gov. Nasir El-Rufia’s Urban Renewal Programme targeted at providing modern infrastructure in the state.
