Three Petrol Station Owners Arrested In Delta.

From  Dave Obaro, Asaba

For breaking government seal on business premises, three filling station owners have been arrested in Asaba.

The Area Planning Officer and Secretary of Delta State Operation Show Your Building Plan Task Force, Mr Bath Osanebi revealed that the lawless act was discovered during a recent monitoring exercise on sealed-up business outlets by the taskforce in Asaba.

According to him, the business premises of the arrested persons had earlier been sealed-up for failure to submit their approved building plans and other title documents to the Area and Zonal Planning Officer in the Ministry of Land and Surveys.

He daid they were expected to submit the required documents within a two-week stipulated period for verification from the day of service but failed to do so.

Osanebi expressed displeasure at the fact that almost a month after the service of verification and subsequent reminder notices were issued, they failed to respond to the directive, but instead broke the government seal.

The Taskforce Secretary described the condemnable act as serious offence while reiterating government's resolve to kick out lawlessness from the citizens, especially business operators who supposedly should be law abiding.

Expressing optimism that the action of the arrests would serve as deterrent to others, he advised property developers to desist from contravening the law to prevent mishaps against humanity.
