Did Wike truly order the demolition of Jabi Motor Park?

Daily Trust stated that its digital investigations revealed that the video was first posted in 2020 when the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) ordered the demolition of illegal shops in the Jabi Motor Park.

The newspaper further noted that in 2022 the Jabi Art Village and illegal structures along Jabi Dakibiyu were demolished.

Also, the newspaper added that its on-site verification showed that there was no ongoing demolition at the section of the park rumoured to be undergoing demolition.

It concluded that the video in circulation suggesting that the Wike had started the demolition of Jabi Motor Park is false and misleading.
