Newsonspot blog reports that officials of Nigeria’s Anti-graft agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday stormed the headquarters of Kaduna State Urban Planning And Development Agency (KASUPDA) located along Bida Road in Kaduna state.
Director General of the agency Ismail Dikko was arrested in the process.
It was gathered that the EFCC officials took over KASUPDA headquarters around 10am while the D.G of the agency was still in a meeting with other staff members.
According to eye witnesses there was mild drama between the EFCC operatives and Staff of KASUPDA at the gate of the agency’s headquarters before Ismail Dikko was whisked away in black Toyota Hilux van.
KASUPDA is the state government agency responsible for the enforcement of state policies on urban planning, control of physical developments in designated urban areas amongst other roles.
Less than two weeks ago, at least 160 houses in Zaria local government area of the state were demolished by them.
The agency explained that the owners of the houses encroached into land belonging to The National College of Aviation Technology.
Newsonspot blog gathered that the DG has been taken to the Kaduna zonal office of the EFCC with sources saying that he had earlier been served several invitations but failed to honour them.
