Mohammed made this known in Abuja on Thursday at a meeting with the House of Representatives Committee on Public Safety and National Security.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that on September 20, seven persons, alleged to be members of the Boko Haram sect, were killed by security operatives at an uncompleted building near Apo Legislative Quarters in Abuja.

He said the FCT administration would no longer condone any delay by developers in completing their buildings after being allocated plots of land. According to him, very soon, we will take a decisive action on uncompleted buildings in the FCT.

“We will ensure that all buildings that have exceeded the two year period approved for building will be demolished. “If we cannot demolish, we will make it a Police Post, this time around we will take a definite action,” he said.

The minister blamed the inability of the FCT Department of Development Control to carry out its mandate on frivolous court injunctions obtained by developers.

He said that between 3,000 and 5,000 double allocations existed in the territory due to revocation and re-allocation of plots as a result of court injunctions.

According to him, 100,000 illegal buildings have been identified since he took over as minister of the FCT.
