Consequently, the House mandated its Committee on FCT to undertake the probe and report back to it within four weeks for further legislative action.

It also resolved that all such lands which are subject to litigation or multiple allocations, should be identified and their allocations withdrawn by the FCT minister pending the resolution of the matter. Gbefwi, in the motion alleged that several title documents were issued to some real estate developers in the FCT, “in a highly suspicious manner.”
