Abuja flooding: 150 houses pulled down already, more to go — FCTA

ABUJA—THE Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA yesterday said more houses would be demolished on waterways in EFAB Estate, Lokogoma and other parts of the nation’s capital, Abuja.

According to the FCTA, this would put an end to the increasing cases of flooding in the FCT, that led to the deaths and loss of property.

Meanwhile, the FCTA has vowed that more buildings in Abuja would be demolished to open up the waterways that had constricted the waterways and ease the flow of water, just as   150 buildings have so far been demolished in flood-prone areas of Abuja.
