Warri: Company responsible for destroying kerb on Federal Highway, commences shoddy repair after Warri South Council’s intervention

The company purportedly responsible for destroying a section of the kerb along the NPA Expressway, after the Ogunu Flyover in Warri, Delta State, Zukus Nigeria Limited, weekend, commenced what appeared a shoddy repair of the 50metre stretch kerb.

Fresh Angle International, understands that Warri South Local Government Council, through the Environment Department, had on Friday June 7, served Zukus Nigeria Limited, Abatement Notice to fix the damaged section of the kerb within 3days of the notice or face further legitimate action.  

Warri South Council Head of Environment Department, Mrs. Stella Mode, who led some Officials of the Department on Monday June 10, to ascertain if Zukus Nigeria Limited, complied with the Abatement Notice, told This Newspaper, that an official of Zukus Nigeria Limited (by name Lucky) claimed the company had approval from a federal government agency to tamper with the kerb.

Mrs. Mode, who was disappointed with the quality and extent of repair work at the damaged kerb, put a call through to the official of Zukus Nigeria Limited, only for the company’s staff to accuse her of looking for money, because she insisted that the level of repair work so far done on the damaged kerb, was shoddy.

When This Soaring International Tabloid contacted Mr. Lucky of Zukus Nigeria Limited  on telephone this afternoon, he insisted they had approval for tampering with the kerb, but was unable to mention the exact ministry, department and agency that gave the company the approval.

Recall that Authorities of the Council, had launched inquest into the property developer (s) responsible for destroying the kerb along the NPA Expressway, after the Ogunu Flyover in Warri.

 

The section along NPA Expressway, Warri, where the kerb was destroyed. Directly facing the kerb, is a fenced property, seemingly under construction

 

 

When the Council Officials got to the scene at about 11:00 am Thursday June 6, armoured cables and pipes originally inside the kerb, were exposed, as a result of the destruction, seemingly targeted at creating an illegitimate access to a fenced land, being developed.

One Engr. Sunday Kehinde Alabi, who spoke to the Warri South Council delegation from a nearby property where construction was ongoing, absolved Lee Engineering from destruction of the kerb.

There was no one inside the fenced undeveloped land facing the section where the kerb was destroyed, while a pillar carrying BEDC high tension cables in the section, appeared to have been deliberately shifted to pave way for further action on the kerb.

Angered by the ugly development, Mrs. Stella Mode, vowed that the Council will fish out the person (s) responsible for the destruction and ensure the law takes its course.
