KASUPDA orders removal of “uninhabitable” structures in Kaduna
By Ezra Musa [NAN]
The Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Authority (KASUPDA) has issued two weeks’ notice to owners of structures it had marked as “uninhabitable”, to remove them.
According to the authority, the directive is to save lives in view of recurring collapse of buildings across the country.
Mallam Isma’il Dikko, Director General of the authority, made this known on Tuesday in a press release issued to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna.
He said all buildings identified by the authority as uninhabitable have been served with the removal order.
Dikko said the affected structures are located in Oriakpata, Badikko Bus Stop, Jos Road and Unguwar Mu’azu, all within Kaduna.
He warned that KASUPDA would sanction defaulters after the expiration of the two weeks order. (NAN)
