"The Price of Urbanisation"
The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) in Abuja demolished houses (which are believed to be "illegal" ) built at Sabo Iddo community near the University of Abuja permanent site.
Sabo Iddo is a home to many students, petty traders, and mostly, the low-income earners who do not have the resources to live in the more civilised part of the F.C.T.
Mr Ikharo Attah, the Chairman, FCTA Ministerial Taskforce on City Sanitation, said the exercise was aimed at promoting sanity in line with the Abuja master plan and to foster a better modernised and civilised vicinity! But this is certainly at the expense of the Residents, whose house are being demolished without any compensation from the government.
This project seeks to showcase the victims who have directly paid the price for urbanisation and as such, making many of them homeless, and hopeless, whilst they look out for any possible help for shelter.
