The FCT Administration, through its City Management Team, has demolished shanties at the Bureau De Change (BDC) headquarters in Zone 4 area of Abuja.

Fielding questions from journalists after clearing the shanties, which include makeshift shops, trees, leader of the team and Director, Department of Development Control, Mukhtar Galadima, said the shanties serve as hideout for suspected criminals in the city centre.

He said the area was full of illegal activities that have become threat to security and must not be allowed to remain.

Galadima, who described the area as an eyesore, said the exercise which was based on directive, would help to bring out the esthetic nature of the place.

According to him, BDC operators are expected to operate from designated and licenced areas and not under trees and bushes as being experienced in Zone 4.

He said the concern of the team was to ensure safety and security of Abuja residents, adding that the operation has nothing to do with fight against BDC operators.
