The Kaduna State Government has offered explanation why it demolished the building housing secretariat of the factional All Progressives Congress in the state.
The building which belonged to Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, who also leds the faction of party, was demolished on Tuesday morning.
The Kaduna State Geographical Information Service explained in a statement issued by the Director-General, Kaduna State Geographical Information, Ibrahim Husseini, Tuesday that the said land was revoked and the building ‘removed’ for flagrant violations of land use and non-payment of rent since 2010.
The statement read in part: “This morning a building on 11B Sambo Close was removed for flagrant violations of land use and non-payment of ground rent since 2010. This illegal violation of use had begun to distress neighbours who were being forced to endure an influx of thugs and blockage of the road.
“The Kaduna Geographic Information Service (KADGIS) issued a revocation notice of the statutory right of occupancy No. KD. 16712, that covers 11b Sambo Close in the Ungwan Rimi area.
“The appropriate notice of revocation was delivered at 28 Inuwa Wada Road, the registered address of the company that held the title to the property. The notice was also delivered to the building in question, and sent by post to the registered address of the previous title holder.”
