Kaduna Sex Party: Demolished Facility Owner Denies Allegation, Seeks Compensation
The owner of the demolished Asher Kings and Queens Restaurant, Mrs Aisha Yakubu, has condemned the demolition of her property by the Kaduna State Property and Urban Development Agency (KASUPDA).
Located in Sabon Tasha area of Chikun Local Government Area of the state, the restaurant is the reported venue of the aborted sex party in Kaduna.
The property, according to KASUPDA, was pulled down on Thursday last week in accordance with the power vested in the agency to demolish any building that contravenes the rights of occupancy.
In an interview with Channels Television on Sunday, Yakubu also denied plans to hold a sex party in the facility and threatened to seek legal action over the demolition of her restaurant.
She insisted that the demolished building was neither a hotel nor a guest house, and was never intended to be used for a sex party as was claimed by the police.
The restaurant owner also stressed that she was not given any prior notice by KASUPDA before the demolition of her restaurant, and therefore asked the Kaduna State government to compensate her.
According to her, the trauma she went through during the period of the demolition made her lose her one-month pregnancy.
In his reaction, the Commissioner of Police in Kaduna, Umar Muri, stated that the demolished building was meant to be used for a sex party on Sunday last week before it was stopped by security operatives.
He also disclosed that some people were arrested in connection with the aborted sex party allegedly scheduled to hold at the Asher Kings and Queens Restaurant.
The police commissioner cited the planned sex party as a violation of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law and the existing COVID-19 regulations on gatherings of individuals for social activities in the state.
He warned that having a sex party anywhere in the state or even outside was legally criminalised by virtue of Sections 166, 168, 260, and 368 of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, 2017.
