Akwa Ibom warns illegal occupants of government land | The Guardian Nigeria News

The Akwa Ibom state government has started firing illegal people occupying government-acquired land and property in Uyo, the state capital.

The measures, according to the commissioner of the Ministry of Lands and Water Resources, Captain Iniobong Ekong (rtd), were aimed at ensuring that people and companies with genuine allotment documents are protected against the criminal activities of intruding developers and land grabbers.

Therefore, the Ministry of Lands and Water Resources has called on those who have land parcel allocation claims in all acquired areas to contact Ministry officials for revalidation and documentation of such claims within two weeks. .

This is contained in a statement signed by the Land and Water Commissioner, advising beneficiaries to ensure compliance with the notice to avoid unpleasant consequences.

The statement reads: “The Akwa Ibom State Government, through the Commissioner of the Ministry of Lands and Water Resources, hereby gives notice of the government’s intention to reclaim all plots of land encroached into government residential estates. ”

“All plot owners must submit their allotment letters to the Deeds Verification Committee of the Ministry of Lands and Water Resources for verification and documentation of authenticity within two (2) weeks from the date of this publication.”
