“The demolition started yesterday (Thursday), and so far so good. The demolition went well, except for Pastor Odumeje, who according to the report drove in, in a brazen manner and attempted to take over the equipment. 

“Of course, state work must go on, and security had to stop him. This was a man in our several meetings. 

“In fact, this is costing us money, and the structures should have removed before now, but they chose to test the resolve of the government. 

“Once we are done with this exercise, we will compile the bills and send to the persons involved, and they must pay.” 

Soludo said two Catholic parishes involved in the illegal structures demolition are St. Dominic Catholic church and Our Lady Queen Catholic church. 

He stated that the parish priest of Our Lady Queen Catholic Parish was around when the demolition team visited, and even cooperated, and also granted an interview. 

He also regretted that Pastor Odumeje took laws into his hands and attempted to stop the exercise.
