Edo govt reclaims road at Uteh community, demolishes illegal structures

The Edo State Government on Sunday recovered a public road at Uteh Community in the Upper Mission Road area of Benin City, being trespassed on by an individual in the community.

A video of the construction of structures on the road had gone viral on Saturday, with members of the community calling on the state government to come to their rescue as the trespasser, is said to be an influencial personality.

When the Nigerian Tribune forwarded the video to the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mr. Osarodion Ogie; the Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Mr. Chris Nehikhare and Mr. Crusoe Osagie, the Special Adviser to Governor Godwin Obaseki on Media and Publicity, Nehikhare responded that the state government had received the video earlier and had detailed the appropriate authorities to step into the matter.

“We got this report yesterday. We have sent people there to demolish, arrest the perpetrator & publicise it. Enough is enough in Edo,” Nehikhare responded to the Nigerian Tribune.
