Abuja explains why it demolished Caramelo Strip Club, days after police raid


Abuja authorities have given reasons for the demolition of the popular Caramelo Strip club.
The Federal Capital Territory Development Authority (FCDA) through its Department of Development Control (DDC) has demolished the controversial Caramelo Lounge, a popular strip club, for allegedly contravening the FCT land use regulations.
This was disclosed by the Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC) Coordinator, Umar Shuaibu, while briefing newsmen on the exercise on Monday in Abuja.
Umar said that in spite of serving quit notice and contravention letters to the operators of the club since 2016, they failed to revert activities on the plot located at N0 630, TOS Benson Crescent, Utako District Abuja

He noted that the plot was originally approved for building of a clinic to provide healthcare services for residents of the territory.
The coordinator said the action followed the approval of the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello, for the revocation of the Certificate of Occupancy (C-of-O) on May 10.
He said activities of the club contravened the provisions of Clause no. 10 of Certificate of Occupancy and Clause 10 of the conveyance letter of building plan.
Umar said there were complaints of noise pollution, insecurity and social disturbances written to AMMC by those in the neighbourhood and DSS on the negative impacts from the premises

Reacting to the development, Managing Director of Caramelo Lounge, Mr Max Eze expressed dismay over the removal exercise. He said they were taken aback by the short notice given to them to vacate the property.
Eze, who subtly admitted to the conversion of the original land use, however, said the management of the lounge had been paying millions of Naira as annual contravention fee to the government.
According to him, the worth of the property demolished is over N100 million, while about one hundred staff are now rendered jobless
