Kuje residents lament destruction of infrastructures by farm owner

Residents of Kuje community in Kuje Area Council, Federal Capital Territory are complaining about the destruction of public infrastructures by the management of Almat Farms.

Some of the residents also alleged that their properties were destroyed by the Farm’s management.

Residents, who witnessed the destruction of the properties, appealed to the authorities in the area council to stop the farm.

According to Godfrey Adams, a resident who was angry about the act, the destruction is uncalled-for, calling on the government to prosecute the management of the farm for the destruction of public infrastructures.

“The sheer lack of respect and love for their neighbours is indeed alarming.

“This is an appeal to the general public to join their voices and share this until it gets to the appropriate quarters.

“We need all the help to safeguard our community infrastructures from further destruction.

“This singular act has left neighbours and the entire community in darkness.

“We have videos and pictures to buttress our claims,” he explained.

Also, Mrs Zainab Abdullahi stated that if the destruction is not checkmated, the serenity enjoyed by the people of Kuje would be threatened by the farm owner.

Efforts made to reach the farm management proved abortive as the phone number of one of the officials given to Daily Trust was not going through.
