The hotel

The Edo State Government has demolished T. Latifa Hotel owned by Mr. Tony Adun also known as Kabaka, for violating building laws as the structure sits across a road in the Ugbor-Amagba axis of Oredo Local Government Area of the state. The hotel building was reduced to rubbles on Wednesday afternoon. According to the Edo government, the demolition action was executed after an injunction secured by Mr Adun against the exercise was vacated by the state government.

The government said it pencilled the structure for demolition, as it was illegal, without an approved building plan for a hotel and sitting across a road. T. Latifa Hotel owned by Mr. Tony Adun “The deed of transfer being paraded by Mr. Adun is also not registered with the state government, according to court papers filed by Solicitor General of Edo State, Oluwole Iyamu SAN,” the government asserted.

Bulldozers and caterpillars were mobilized to the site for the exercise while security operatives mounted guard to ensure the process was not disrupted by thugs in the area loyal to Mr Adun. The leader of the security team cordoned off the area and urged residents and shop owners around the area not to panic while the exercise lasted. However, Mr. Adun, the owner of the demolished hotel was reported to be a member of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and an adept follower of the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole. Vanguard
