Prominent lawyer, Femi Falana has lambasted Governor El-Rufai of Kaduna State for demolishing Asher Kings and Queens Restaurant over alleged sex party.”
He said; “Kaduna State Governor violated Section 79 of the Kaduna State Urban and Regional Planning Law, 2018, which Governor Nasir el-Rufai personally signed by demolishing Asher Kings and Queens Restaurant, the purported venue of a botched sex party in the state”.
“The law which was signed by El-Rufai in 2018 does not allow for demolition without a notice. Section 79 of the law is clear. No governor has the right to authorise a demolition of the property of anyone.”
“The governor cannot be the accuser, the prosecutor, the judge and the executor the judgment. All the states in Nigeria have similar laws, whether in Rivers or Lagos. None has the power to pull down the property of any citizen who has not been given the opportunity of making a representation.”
“No one is in support of sex parties taking place in the country but anyone found wanting should be arrested and prosecuted according to the law. They should have prosecuted those accused of committing the offence and not pulled down the building.”
