FCT High Court sitting in Jabi District of Abuja, has given an order restraining the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory and Federal Capital Development Authority from carrying out its proposed demolition of Aleyita Community located along Airport Road Abuja.

It would be recalled that officials of FCT Department of Development Control, had invaded the community in August 31, where they marked the buildings and informed the inhabitants of its plan to demolish the structures.

Delivering the verdict, Justice Danlami Senchi ordered the defendants to restrain from carrying out its earlier demolition plan until the hearing and determination of the substantive suit before the court.

Speaking to Journalists after the court verdict on Wednesday, Counsel to Aleyita Community, Ali Zubairu commended the court for the interim measure.

He said the inhabitants of the community have been living in their ancestral home long before the decision to make Abuja the capital of Nigeria.

He said unlike other communities within the territory, the good people of Aleyita had neither been compensated nor resettled.
