  • FG Uncovers Massive Land Fraud In Abuja
  • The Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property, SPIP, said it has uncovered fraudulent practices in land allocation in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

    The panel said the Federal Government has lost huge funds to the fraudulent practices where parcels of land are allocated for mass housing projects without the necessary payments made.

    SPIP said findings by its investigative team revealed that, as at June this year, over 300 parcels of land were allocated for mass housing projects, but that 79 per cent of the beneficiaries “have not complied with statutory requirements and payments.”

    SPIP Chairman, Okoi Obono-Obla disclosed these during a visit to the Minister of the FCT, where he sought the Minister’s support for his panel’s planned public hearing on the issue.
