The operation happened at an area called Mile 13 around 3 am on Friday, leaving residents homeless with several losing properties in the process.

The MP said he believes that he was the target of the demolition exercise but other structures were pulled down as a cover-up.

“Look at how the buildings that are before mine were spared because he told me that he placed a call to somebody and that person instructed that that building should be left out.”

He said he has made calls to the State Housing Company Limited about the incident but they have refused to speak with him.

Mr Dafeamekpor has vowed to fight those who demolished his building, adding that “even if it will take 10 years, I will pursue them in court.”

The homes demolished included a four-bedroom facility and a single room.

A church in the community was also affected.

According to the soldiers, the land on which the buildings were put up belonged to the government.

But the residents said that the soldiers went ahead with the demolition without presenting any court warrant or documents to prove that the property belonged to the state.
