Governor Rochas Okorocha, has doled out N30 million Naira to the fourth Batch of Landlords whose illegal buildings were demolished at the Green Belt area of the Owerri capital city.
Speaking through the Commissioner for Lands and Survey, Hon. Uche Nwosu, His Excellency assured the landlords that compensatory plots would be given to them by September to build their houses.
Hon. Nwosu, stated further that demolition exercise was not done in bad faith, rather, to maintain the original master plan of Owerri for the city to avert problems of flood, erosion and blockages in future.
The Commissioner pointed out that the amount given to them was not the value of their property,but assistance to secure alternative accommodation until the compensatory plots are given to them for the construction of their permanent houses.
