Management issues quit notice to illegal occupants of Railway’s properties


– Reads riot act to rent defaulters

Officials of Railway Property Management Company Limited (RPMCL) have issued notice of ejection to illegal occupants of Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) landed properties nationwide.

According to the management, legal action will soon be taken against the illegal occupants and those who refused to pay accrued rents from its properties.


Speaking with journalists in Kaduna yesterday, the Assistant Chief Corporate Affairs Officer RPMCL, Gloria Zinnass, condemned the activities of the illegal occupants, saying that the management would soon eject them and recover all its properties across the country.

However, spokesperson of the company urged those that deferred payment of long outstanding rents “to come forward and fully settle their rental obligations to the company by visiting any nearby RPMCL zonal, area or head office to pay without further delay or face stiff sanctions.”

RPMCL, a subsidiary of NRC, also called on members of the public who illegally occupied Railway lands and landed properties without any formal approval to come for clarification, or be ready to face the full weight of the law.

Also, all those who have businesses along Railway corridors have been advised to consult the zonal, area or head office for clearance.

In the same vein, the company further called on “any person or group of persons claiming ownership of Railway lands and landed properties to desist from such act or face legal actions.”

Mrs. Zinnass stressed, “All tenants who have transferred Railway properties to third parties without prior consent of RPMCL should urgently do so or risk revocation of allocation or forfeiture of right to exercise option to renew allocation upon expiration.”

She added, “The public and all concerned are therefore warned to desist from entering into any transaction relating to Railway lands with anybody without the express prior written approval from RPMCL.

“All payments for outstanding rents should be made on or before November 30, 2019 to avoid sanctions.”
