The attention of the minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr Nyesom Wike has been drawn to the illegal land grabbers parading themselves as FCDA staff to take over lands from the unsuspecting Abuja residents.

The activities of the people are becoming embarrassing as they invaded CRD Lugbe 1 Layout to harass residents that they are coming to take over the lands with their fictitious notice which can not be traced to FCDA.

The suspected criminal masquerading as staff of development control at CRD     Lugbe 1 Layout stormed River Park Estate and upon being challenged by residents to identify themselves and found that they were fake because they could not provide any identification.

Residents of CRD Lugbe layout woke up today to see some strange looking fellows serving them  demolition notices purportly issued by Development Control.

This were being done against the court order that there should be stay of execution pending the determination of the case.

 It would be recalled that the residents who have been running battle with Paul Odili , the so called owner of River Park Estate , Airport Road, the case is still pending therefore, FCDA which is party to the case can not come and give notice for the demolition.

One of the residents, Alhaji Adamu Mohammed expressed concern that this ugly development, alleging that it is another attempt by Paul Odili to forcibly grab their lands in connivance with some faceless elements in the Fcda. 

The ownership of the disputed land has been the subject matter of several litigations with the courts ruling in favor of the residents. 

The residents expressed worried by the embarrassing behaviour of the so call owner of the estate, the residing judge took it upon himself to visit the disputed land ordering River Park to stop encroachment of the layout. 

Mr Odili, over the years, had ignored the court orders and constructed all sorts of fences  and harassing residents. 

Some residents accosted the so-called officials of FCDA to identify themselves but they could not. 

Alhaji Adamu Mohammed maintained a close look at the demolition notice revealed that the signatories did not indicate their names and notices are not addressed properly. 

These discrepancies reinforce the belief of the residents that these fellows are mobilized by River Park Estate owner to do his bidding. 

This type of illegally should not be allowed in any democracy. The government should intervene in the matter with a view to calling Mr Odili to order, that he should wait for determination of the case. 

The residents used this medium to call on President Bola Tinubu to stop these faceless people destroying the good work of the FCT minister in maintaining Abuja master plan.

The residents also advised general public to be wary of the land they are buying because Mr Odili had already sold the land in the estate to some personal legitimately and Court ruling attested to this fact.

The residents of the estate however, urged  the minister to intervene by calling some individual in the FCDA that were backing Mr Odili to order or at best set up a panel to investigate the matter before it degenerated to a public disorder.

The residents stressed that it is time to expose the illegal activities of some of the development control staff, who work hand in hand with a private estate developer (paulo) to sabotage our lands. Because that is actually their main agenda. Its time the top authorities are called out for a permanent solution
