A house belonging to one John Emejulu, who demolished part of the perimeter fence of Akanu Ibiam International Airport Enugu, has been demolished by the Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority, ECTDA.
The private residence situated along Eziokwe street, off Nike Lake road, Trans Ekulu, Enugu, was pulled down on Friday in an exercise supervised by the Chairman of ECTDA, Dr Josef Onoh.
According to Onoh, the demolition of the duplex was in compliance with a court order to that effect.
Onoh said the property stood on water way and needed to give way.
He denied that the action was in reprisal to Emejulu’s demolition of the airport fence being constructed as part of the airport rehabilitation.
Emejulu had on Wednesday executed an order of court at the disputed airport land to take back his 400 plots he said he bought from Nike Community in 2008.
Minister for Aviation, Hadi Sirika who inspected the demolition on Thursday, had decried Emejulu’s actions.
Also, Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi had on Thursday vowed to send a strong message to Emejulu for allegedly daring the state government by demolishing the airport fence.
