With the demolition of Odumeje’s Church this morning, Anambra State Governor Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has begun a massive demolition of illegal structures in Onitsha in keeping with his promise to restore the city to its former splendour.
Recall that on March 15, 2022, sources had said that the state’s then-governor-elect intended to remove all illegal structures and demolish buildings on flood channels.
Other churches, industries, residential buildings, etc. built along flood channels like Sakamori, Nwangene stream, Otumoye and other areas would be pulled down soon. Some of the structures at Zik’s avenue, fegge , Ochanja market, Biafran market and Main market Onitsha have been penciled for demolition.
