Edo reads riot act to house owners under high tension cables
Edo State Government has warned owners of illegal structures under and within the statutory right of way of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) in the state, to remove such structures, as the government intends to enforce appropriate sanctions against defaulters.
In a statement signed by Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Erimona Edorodion Oye, the state government warned that the actions of the defaulters amount to an act of illegality, which constitutes ‘environmental nuisance and threat to the lives and property of the violators and users of such space.”
He said: “The state government condemns this act of violation and advises all owners of such illegal structures to with immediate effect remove them without delay. “Failure to comply with the above directive, the Ministry will not hesitate to enforce appropriate sanctions against violators in line with Extant Planning Laws of the State, by removing all the illegal structures and recovering of the cost of carrying out such exercise.”
