Over 100 persons risk losing their homes following the sealing off of shanties in the Anambra State capital by the Awka Capital Territory Development Authority, ACTDA.
 
The agency sealed off structures sited indiscriminately in Awka, including shanties built under high-tension poles and cables. Other unauthorised buildings also sealed off were those whose fences were above the 0.9 meter authorised height and environments with overgrown grasses.
 
The ACTDA team led by the Managing Director, Venerable Amaechi Okwuosa, paste sealed notice on the properties, while also using keys to lock out residents.
 
From the main entrance of the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital, Amaku Awka, where the team kicked off to Agu Awka, where they wrapped it up, over 30 residences were sealed.
 
The agency also sealed off a cooking gas plant situated inside a petrol station.
 
The ACTDA boss, Venerable Okwuosa said that most of the affected structures and sites had been issued warning notes by the Board prior to the day, which most of them failed to comply.
 
He said the drive by Governor Willie Obiano’s administration to give Anambra State, particularly Awka, the State’s capital, a befitting and world-class aesthetics must be adhered to by the people, and warned that the Board will not hesitate to sanction anybody involved in indiscriminate constructions that deface the city.
 
A stranded resident of one of the affected structures, Mr. Chika Akabogu, told journalists that the government’s intervention, as challenging as it seemed, was necessary if Awka must attain the dream height.
