Destruction of Kerb on Federal Highway: Court summons firm over failure to comply with Abatement Notice


A court, Warri Magisterial II District, has summon a Warri based firm, Zukus Nigeria Limited, to appear before it, July 2, 2024, over alleged failure to comply with the terms of an Abatement Notice served on it by authorities of Warri South Local Government Council.

Fresh Angle International can report that the criminal summons with No. 2008, sighted today, Thursday June 13, was sequel to the destruction of a section of the kerb, along the NPA Expressway, after the Ogunu Flyover in Warri, Delta State.

The writ, stated in parts: “To the owner/occupier, new developed yard of NPA Express, beside Lee Engineering Yard, complaint has been made this day by Environmental Health Officer, Warri South Local Government Council, for that you on the 12th day of June 2024 at the above address in the Warri Magisterial 2 district, aforesaid, did fail to comply with the terms of an Abatement Notice No 2008 served on you on the 7th day of June 2024.

“You are therefore hereby summoned to appear before the Chief Magistrate court sitting at Warri, by ‘A’ Division, Warri on the 2nd day of July 2024.”

Recall that Zukus Nigeria Limited, purportedly responsible for destroying the kerb, weekend, commenced what appeared a shoddy repair of the 50metre stretch kerb.

Warri South Local Government Council, through its 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. 

The 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, same day 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.
