A Kaduna High Court on Wednesday issued a fresh order restraining the Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Agency and its agents from building on a plot of land belonging to Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi. The Court ordered cessation of actions on the land located at plot 11B Sambo Road, Unguwan Rimi, Kaduna, pending the determination of a suit before it.
The property was seized by the State Geographic Information Service. The building was demolished on the order of the state government over the alleged failure of the Senator to settle several years of ground rent. Justice H. T. D. Gwadah, who gave the order, adjourned until October 23 for hearing in the case. The Court on March 15, 2018 gave an interim order restraining Kaduna State Government, KADGIS and their agents from taking further actions on the property, including doing any harm to the boys’ quarters that survived the Feb 20 demolition.
The court, after issuing the order upon a motion exparte brought pursuant to Order 15 Rule 1 of the Kaduna State High Court Civil Procedure Rules 2007, adjourned the case to Oct. 23, 2018 for mention.
