Indigenes of Kpaduma community in Asokoro Extension of Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) have called on developers to leave their community land alone, pending the determination of a court case between the community and the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA).
In the resolution signed by Hon. Bala Iyah, Majin Dadi of Kpaduma community, Simon Baba, secretary general of the community and Dantani Bawa, the community youth leader, the natives stated that they have never been compensated by the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA), and therefore, would not tolerate any group of persons, organisation and individual who would want to intimidate them and forcefully take over their land.
According to the resolution, “Kpaduma community hereby inform all developers to stop parading, harassing and intimidating our people with armed security personnel, as we are not and will never be ready for settlement with any individual, organisation or developers. We are Nigerians and we deserve to be treated equally as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution, as amended.”
The natives, who held an emergency meeting in the community on the continuous harassment and intimidation from developers, also vowed to resist any allocation, within the centre of their ancestral homes and environs, just as they advised developers to approach the office of the FCT minister for alternative replacement of their allocation.
They also drew the attention of the security agencies that the issue between Kpaduma community and land developers is not and can never be a security threat, nor be treated as criminal issue, adding that it is purely a civil matter that can be addressed and settled in the civil court of law.
LEADERSHIP gathered that the three-page resolution was also forwarded to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), the FCT minister, Chief of Army Staff, the State Security Service (SSS) and the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), among others.
