TWO CATERPILLERS AND ABOUT SEVEN VEHICLES FULL LOAD OF SOLDIERS BOMBARDED JAHI RESIDENCE TO DEMOLISH. RESIDENCE CAME OUT AND REFUSED THE DEMOLITION ATTEMPT.

my Ancestral home(my pride of place as a Nigerian) NEW
by: Anonymous

Ancestral home(my pride of place as a Nigerian) is where i am. Any attempt by few persons to deprive me and my people of their right to existance is inhuman. It should be noted that the only resources we have is our land. Once we loose it, we have nothing to live for and anything can result from such.
Therefor, the laws setting up FCT should be revisit to correct the statements that Abuja is no mans land.

NO TO JAHI DEMOLUTION NEW
by: nurudeen yunus

Who ever is responsible to jahi,s demolution should beware that he is only causing more problem to nigeria, because the houses to be demolished belongs to the indiginous people of FCT(gbagyi).they should also be aware that the indinous people will not give out they ancientral home because they had no other place to go.the govt should try to takle this problem but demolushing the gbagyi houses will only add to the critical problems in nigeria because by the time the indiginous people will display they own part of violence as a result of an individual from no where claiming their ancientral home will compound to the problems of nigeria. In other to solve this problem justice should be given to the indiginous people.
