The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has announced that it will be demolishing two nightclubs in the suburban town of Karu in the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) over violations of COVID-19 safety protocols.
Head of Public Enlightenment of the FCTA Task Force on Enforcement of COVOD-19 Guidelines, Ikharo Attah who confirmed that Cool Leo and Paris nightclubs were sealed off over the weekend for violating COVID-19 guidelines and for arbitrary change of land use from residential to commercial and hospitality, said authorities would stop at nothing to ensure demolition of the two popular night clubs unless they are reverted to approved residential land use of the area.
Speaking at the Eagle Square during the trial of 29 people arrested across the FCT for breaking COVID-19 guidelines, Attah said;
“Two clubs in Karu Site have been asked to close. They operate in residential areas against COVID-19 protocols and disrupt the peace of residents at night. They are Paris Club and Cool Lea and they have been sealed off indefinitely.
“Should they refuse to revert, then we invoke other aspects of the FCT Master Plan and demolish. We will not allow them to continue disturbing the neighbourhood.”
