Officials of the Kaduna State Urban State Urban Planning Development Agency carried out the exercise.
According to the Public Relations Officer of the agency, Nuhu Garba, the property located at Sabon Tasha in Chikun Local Government Area of the state, was pulled down on Thursday.
This, he said, was in accordance with the laws guiding the agency over properties in the state.
Garba said, “The law has vested the agency the power to demolish any building that contravenes the rights of occupancy.
“For instance, if a residential building is turned into something other than the purpose it was meant, the law gives us the power to demolish such property especially if it’s against the public interest.
“We are in Narayi (another suburb) too to carry out a similar assignment. We are currently demolishing another building that promotes illicit acts.”
