The continuous attack and destruction of hotels and night clubs by the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), has made residents of the Federal Capital Territory to raise alarm over plans to use the exercise as an Islamization tool to Islamize the nation’s capital.
The accusation is coming following the quit notice served on another popular social club ( Ibiza Nite Club ) which is located at No.11, Port Harcourt Crescent, Off Gimbiya Street, Area 11, Garki.
The FCTA authority have given a two-week notice to the management of the club to revert to the designated use or risk appropriate sanctions.
Any moment from now the authority will mobilize bulldozers to the premises of the building for action.
A visit to Ibiza club on Saturday revealed how scanty it was with few customers seen at the bar section.
Also, the club which always record large number of customers both in the day and night is now a ghost of itself as the place was deserted following the raid by a joint task force of Abuja Environmental Protection Board ( AEPB).
According to a social commentator, Mr. Ini Akpabio, if there is any extant law backing the action of the FCTA then it would be difficult to read religion and tribal sentiments to the action.
Akpabio urged the authority to follow the rule of law in enforcing the law adding that added that two wrongs can never make a right.
He, therefore, asked the owner of Caramelo Lounge to seek redress in the court of law if there is any infraction on the part of the authority.
He stated that Abuja is a cosmopolitan city and any law made must reflect the interest of all Nigerians irrespective of their ethnic and religious affiliation. He added that a cosmopolitan city must be run as cosmopolitan devoid of any primordial sentiments.
On his own part the Coordinator Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju said those people with school of thought of plan to Islamize the city cannot be wrong. He stated that those who are morally regulating the city belong a particular religious faith with a clandestine agenda.
Deji cautioned those behind the plot to jettison such reprehensive plan stating that Nigerians will resist it.
A group under the aegis of Concerned Abuja Residents last week took to the streets to protest the arrests of over 100 women from public places on suspicion of loitering and prostitution.
The National Human Rights Commission ( NHRC) also condemned the alleged molestation and exploitation of women by police. The commission also ordered the Executive Director of Abuja Environmental Protection Board ( AEPB ) to appear before it to explain the motive behind the raid.
