Residents and home owners at Festac phase 2 abulado estate, under Amuwo odofin local government woke up in their tears as the government of Lagos state through the Federal Housing Authority, demolished several houses and homes belonging to citizens on a Sunday morning.
The demolition of houses at the estate comes barely 48 hours after an article announced that the FHA will soon begin mass demolition of buildings without approval in Festac Town.
The sad news was shared by a twitter user who said;
“Ego umu igbo agwugo.. (meaning igbo people’s money has finished here). This first yellow building belongs to my oga at ASPAMDA. Make i no mention name because he’s popular.”
“They started since 5 am.. See beautiful Igbo people’s houses.. FHA said the land is not approved. I am watching people’s houses being destroyed and it’s painful.
“I am here in Festac phase 2 abulado estate under Amuwo odofin local government under, and I’m crying because I have friends who have houses here.
