Lifestyle Nigeria gathered that the Federal Capital Territory Minister, Nyesom Wike-led administration, has demolished the popular Kilishi market located in the Area 1 area of Abuja.
The demolition which took place on Monday followed a notice earlier issued on Sunday by the Director, Development Control, Federal Capital Territory Administration, Muktar Galadima, during a meeting with traders and owners of shops at the Area 1 shopping complex.
The meeting was to reach an understanding with the traders and owners of shops in the area before the demolition was carried out.
Galadima had stated that attachment shops, other illegal constructions, and parking lots have made the roads around the complex impassable.
This development was arrived at by authorities of the FCTA made up of the Departments of Development Control, Security Service, the Abuja Environmental Protection Board, as well as the Abuja Investments Company Limited, at a meeting with traders.
Galadima made this known at the meeting with traders and owners of shops during the weekend.
