Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, says plans have been concluded to prosecute illegal Estate Developers that are violating the guidelines at the Urban and Regional Tribunal.

The Director, Department of Development Control, Muktar Galadima made this known on Tuesday when he led other management staff to demolish illegal encroachment and structures in water channels, around Kukwaba District.

Galadima who also toured Katampe, on monitoring and inspection duties, said the actions of many developers amount to economic crimes.

He further said the EFCC would be invited to look into the matter, towards addressing economic loss to Government and those of off takers.

Galadima lamented that huge resources was being committed into the demolition exercise, hence the Government would not fold its arms to watch illegalities thrive.
