Illegal Structures Are Going Down In Abuja To Keep To Masterplan– DRTS


Illegal structures in the Nigerian capital city, Abuja are going down.

The Wike administration is keeping to the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA)’s masterplan by demolishing shops, eateries and others illegally erected.

The Directorate of Road Transport Services (DRTS) of FCTA is superversing the demolition.


On Friday, January 12, the administration demolished Area 3 and Banex Junction Taxi Ranks, respectively.

It was gathered that the DTRS team, was accompanied by security agencies.

Some of the structures illegally operating in the areas marked for demolishing includes; a car wash, mechanic workshop, cinema house, and eateries among others.

Peter Olumuji, the Secretary, Command and Control Centre, Department of Security Service (FCTA), said:

“One chance happens when people do not have a secured taxi rank to board vehicles.

“We have gone round with DRTS officials; we noticed that most of the taxi ranks were occupied by people that were not meant to be there, and not given room to taxi owners to use the space.

“But as we clear these illegal structures, more vehicles will be coming into the ranks, so that commuters will be able to board safe and secured taxis to their various destinations.”
