Anambra State Govt Reechoes Warning Against Encroachment On Govt’s Land, Demolishes Illegal Structures In Onitsha

Land speculators have been warned against encroachment on lands indiscriminately across the State.

The warning was issued when a special government  enforcement team led by the Anambra State Physical Planning Board demolished buildings and parameter fencing erected on over twenty plots of land near the Governor’s lodge Onitsha, which had been mapped out as judges’ quarters.

Correspondent, Ejike Abana reports that the team  visited  the Judges’  Quarters, Onitsha where faceless individuals erected structures without recourse to the provisions of the law.

According to the Executive Chairman of Anambra State Physical Planning Board, Mr Chike Maduekwe the law is clear that before developers embark on any project, approval must be sought from the government.

He described the structures as illegal which he said was why the board removed them and stopped further development on the land in question.

Mr Maduekwe who observed that the visit and clamp down on such illegal developers was the fourth on the same location, emphasized that the team paid the visit on express directive of the Governor.

He said the government had since allocated the land for the building of official residence for judges in the State, pointing out that the place was again marked two weeks ago for demolition but the developer continued to develop, without recourse to the directive.

Mr Maduekwe who is also the Special Adviser to the Governor on Digital Economy stated that government had demanded from the developer papers relating to his claim over the land, but got non, stressing that security agencies had been placed on alert to arrest and prosecute anyone encroaching on the government land.
