Gov. Umaru Al-Makura of Nasarawa State on Thursday said the state government would demolish illegal structures erected on government land in Karu Local Government Area.
Al-Makura said this at Koroduma, Karu, near Abuja during a visit to the area.
He said more than 20 hectares of government land located near Koroduma Police Station had been encroached by private developers.
He warned that the state government would no longer tolerate the illegal act, adding that the government would take necessary measures to recover its property.
“This administration stands for diligence, discipline and order and will no longer tolerate any untoward attitude from people,” Al-Makura said.
He said the state government would investigate and unearth land racketeering syndicate in the area, adding that any government official found wanting would be sanctioned.
Al-Makura directed property developers in the area to verify their land document with the government.
Mr Sunny Agassi, former commissioner for Lands in the state, who was on the governor’s entourage, urged the state government to introduce measures to save its property in the area.
