FCDA Demolishes AIT's 'Building' In Abuja

The Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA), Abuja, on Tuesday demolished structure belonging to Daar Communications, owners of African Independent Television (AIT) and RayPower FM.

The structure, located at Kpaduma Hill, Asokoro District of Abuja was brought down by bulldozers early Tuesday.

DAAR Communications, a private broadcasting organisation in Nigeria, was founded by Raymond Dokpesi in 2007.

A statement signed by the coordinator of the Abuja Metropolitan Management Council, Umar Shuaibu, said only a ‘portion of a fence’ was demolished.

It added that the purpose of the demolition ”was not to upset the Management of DAAR Communications but to remove a portion of a fence around the AIT premises that legally belongs to other citizens of the country”.

He said the demolished fence was causing’obstruction’ to neighbours.
