The Nation gathered from neighbours that the buildings were on the Right of Way (RoW), and that the government intends to construct roads in the areas where those houses were built.

Some houses in the area were said to have been marked for demolition and given a 21-day evacuation notice.

But the demolition, they said, affected houses not marked for demolition.

A member of Maranatha Prayer Ministry, Jude Nkanebe, said he was called at about 8:30am that the ministry has been demolished, adding that the ministry was not marked for demolition, and therefore was not informed or served with any paper or document regarding evacuation or demolition.
