Enugu: The Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority, ECTDA, has threatened to shutdown all Night clubs constituting nuisances within the state capital, particularly Cubana and Rewind Night clubs.
In a statement signed by its Executive Chairman, Dr. Josef Umunnakwe Onoh, ECTDA berated night clubs along Igboeze Street in Independence layout, particularly Cubaña and Rewind Nights clubs for turning the residential area into street trading, Prostitution Avenue and a keke hub.
The statement reads thus:
“They are compelled to abate the nuisances forthwith. Failure of these clubs to abate the nuisances within 30 days from this notice will result in immediate and permanent shut down of these premises.”
The Enugu Capital Territory urged all building owners whose structures were built on waterways, in all estates especially in Independence layout, GRA, among others areas which cumulatively forms the Enugu City master plan, to quietly remove them
“They should liaise with the state ministry of works, or the state ministry of environment to find alternatives to salvage their properties.
“All submissions should be made to the ministry of Environment and Ministry of works within 30 days of this announcement. Any property owner who fails to abide by this announcement will have his property demolished.
“Therefore, to avoid public outcry, owners of the affected properties are requested to comply with this candid directive within 30 days of this notice.
“Subsequently, notice is further given to all street traders using either wheel barrow, makeshift tables or other forms of street nuisance that constitute blockages in Abakpa, Garriki, Agbani road, Uwani, Holy Ghost, Coal camp, Emene, Eke-Obinagu and other places, to within the same 30 days vacate the streets or face the wrath of Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority.
