The Benue State government Monday said it had marked about 206 illegal structures scattered across the state capital, Makurdi for demolition in the next demolition exercise bid to take place this week.
General Manager of Benue State Urban Development Board, Mr. Richard Agwa disclosed this while fielding questions from journalists in his office in Makurdi.
Agwa explained that owners of such structures have long been served with notices of demolition, adding that the exercise is a deliberate policy of the Ortom administration to open up development blocked channels as the rains is fast approaching.
He disclosed that areas where the structures have been marked for demolition include Achusa, Kanshio as well as Logo 1 and 2, adding that the major challenge confronting the board was lack of earth moving equipment, but commended the governor for making a provision for the board in the 2016 budget to address some of the problems.
