Reports say the houses were pulled down at the Trademore Estate and Lugbe in Abuja Municipal Area Council while the affected building owners were seen hurriedly evacuating their property and conveying them in several vehicles.

The demolition came barely forty-eight hours after the Federal authorities issued a notice, a situation that made residents accused the FCTA officials of putting them in an embarrassing situation.

Speaking with newsmen, the Chairman, Trademore Estate Phase Two, Uchechukwu Moses, said, residents of the area were angry because the FCT Minister approved just twenty-three houses for demolition but they observed that over ninety-six buildings were actually marked to be pulled own.
