Lawyer Timbo condemned the demolition and stated that the demolition has not been done in the proper way and that it over acres of land that the demolition exercise is covering which is not what Carlton Carew is claiming.
He added “Carlton-Carew has provided a document indicating just seven town lot not the whole community, so in order to have a peaceful community there should be authorities that will ensure the accurate measurement of the plot of land for the sake of peace and tranquility in our community.”
