“Such Huge Land Shouldn’t Be Given To An Igbo Man”, Wike Complains As He Ignores Court Order Over Property Demolition

A property development saga near Asokoro has ignited a storm of controversy as Nyesom Wike of the FCT faces accusations of demolishing a multibillion-naira property without legal grounds. The property, sprawling over 214 hectares, owned by Linus and Nicholas Ukachukwu, was demolished without any official revocation order from the FCT administration.

Linus Ukachukwu, the aggrieved owner, expressed dismay over the demolition, alleging it was orchestrated in bad faith. He recounted a meeting with Governor Wike where legal documents were presented, prompting Wike to defer the matter to the court. However, Ukachukwu claimed that during a subsequent visit to the land, Wike vehemently objected to allocating such a vast expanse to an Igbo businessman.

“We went with our documents, and after he saw what we had with our lawyers, he said the court should take effect,” Ukachukwu stated. “After a tour of the land, he shouted and complained as to why the huge land will be given to an Igbo man.”

Ukachukwu emphasized that all legal titles and deeds for the property had been duly obtained, including ministerial titles, the latest being from the former FCT Minister, Bello Mohammed.

Despite the demolition, Ukachukwu asserted that no official documents concerning the land had been received, and the title remained unrevoked. He further alleged that the demolition disregarded two pending court orders restraining any FCT action on the land.

“Despite this, Wike mobilized workmen to go on a demolition spree, an action done in bad faith,” Ukachukwu added.

The demolition has prompted calls for intervention, with Chief Bola Tinubu urged to step in. Critics argue that the incident not only raises concerns about property rights but also exacerbates ethnic tensions.
