The Federal Government has initiated plans to take over the area of Abule Ado affected by Sunday’s gas explosion.
The acting Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Federal Housing Authority (FHA), Umar Saliu Buntu, who visited the site of the explosion yesterday accused the original land-owning family of selling Federal Government owned land to unsuspecting members of the public. He said:
“The Amuwo-Odofin residents are claiming ownership while the government has acquired this land for a long time.
“The land spread to the Ojo Cantonment up to Trade Fair but over time, the family (owners) was still selling to members of the public.
“The government is coming back to take charge”…
