Few hours after Senator Hunkuyi took to twitter to call out Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El’Rufai for personally driving the bulldozer to demolish his house which many linked to a political vendetta, the State Government has released a statement.

Senator Hunkuyi tweeted;


In the early hours of today, the @GovKaduna Mallam @elrufai personally drove a bulldozer accompanied by armored tanks to destroy my house at 11B Sambo Road. This is a new low and fighting dirty with such low level of pettiness is indeed unprecedented in Kaduna State.

It is on record that few months back, @GovKaduna Mallam @ elrufai marked another property of mine in Hunkuyi town for demolition but residents of the area prevented the officials from demolishing it. Today, he came well prepared with military men to destroy my house at Sambo Road

Kaduna State Government in its statement, however claimed that ‘ the building was removed for flagrant violations of land use and non payments of ground rents since 2010.’

Here’s the statement below;

The Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Agency (KAPSUDA) is currently undertaking operations across Kaduna metropolis in compliance with its mandate. In partnership with sister agencies, KASUPDA is clearing illegal structures, tackling street hawking and restoring order across Kaduna.


This morning a building on 11B Sambo Close was removed for violations of land use and non-payment of ground rent since 2010. A notice of demolition was delivered at 28 Inuwa Wada Road, the registered address of the company that held the title to the property. The notice was also delivered to the building in question.

The land has now been allocated to KASUPDA for the purpose of developing and maintaining a public park that will provide a green area and a serene place for recreation in that neighbourhood.

KASUPDA wishes to remind all title owners to be fastidious in complying with the terms of their allocation. The purpose of allocation of land cannot be wilfully altered; neither can title holders lawfully neglect to pay their ground rents.
