Residents of New Kuchigoro, a small resident in Abuja, were unhappy and protested against the demolition of their houses by the Abuja Development Control Department.

The Protesting residents gave many reasons why they are protesting.

Firstly, They were only given 1 week quit notice which is too small to give them enough time to relocate.

Secondly, most of the residents had gone to their offices before the demolition team came.

Thirdly, Some of the residents died during the demolition.

Also, most of the residents are non-indigenes.

But Mrs Josie Mudashiru, Head of Public Relations Unit, Department of Development Control, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council, told NAN that the people were given sufficient notice. 

Na wa oo!! Poor man no fit stay for Abuja again!
