Nigerians have been reacting to the demolition of Asher Kings and Queens Restaurant and Lounge, located at Sabon Tasha, Kaduna State.
The hotel and event center was demolished the Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Agency, (KASUPDA), on the order of El-Rufai.
The demolition took place on Thursday, December 31, 2020, days after a poster of a “Kaduna Sex Party” went viral on social media.
Reacting to the demolition, Nigerians condemn the government for the action insisting that due diligence was not done to ascertain the veracity of the claim that the hotel was indeed the venue for the party.
There are those who also hold the opinion that since those behind the party had been arrested, there was no need for the demolition of the said property if indeed the property was the venue of the party, as the owner was only in business.
Also, there is the position that the government had stolen the jobs of a lot of people working in the hotel at a time when the country’s unemployment rate is at an all-time high.
Recall that the Kaduna State Police on Thursday, December 31, paraded the suspected organizers and promoters of a botched sex party.
While speaking on the party, one of the organisers was quoted as saying this:
“Kaduna’ Sex Party started as a joke between me and my friends, it was not meant to go public, it was not meant to cause nuisance among the public of Kaduna State. It was just someone that felt that she was too brilliant that posted it on Twitter,” he said.
“I never posted the party invite on Twitter. Yes, I initiated it, yes, it started as a joke, I keep saying it, it was not meant to disturb the peace and security of Kaduna. The whole thing was a joke. A friend made the flier that was posted on Twitter and put my number on it and we all laughed over it, but somebody sent to someone and to another person like that, until it got to Twitter.”
