The plan of Governor Chukwuma Soludo to make Anambra a liveable state will cost many home and shop owners their property.


The state government had last week already commenced the demolition of buildings and structures considered to be sitting on drainages and waterways.


Among those already demolished are two Catholic Churches, and another pentecostal church owned by controversial Pastor, Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere, alias Pastor Odumeje.


Meanwhile, more structures have been marked for demolition, this time in the busy Ochanja market.


A team led by the Anambra State Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Dr Obinna Ngonnadi who were in the market on Friday were said to have marked several hundreds of shops for demolition.


The structures were said to be either illegal structures or unfit structures, and have been marked for removal.


A source said: “According to officials who came to the market, most of such buildings were built without approval while others lack integrity test and structurally deficient and thus pose a great threat to the lives of traders, customers alike and other property nearby.”
