The newly constructed school belonging to Bishop David Oyedepo, General Overseer of Living Faith Church in Port Harcourt has been demolished.
The storey school building known as Kingdom Heritage Model School, at 43 Igboukwu Street, D Line, was demolished on instructions of the Rivers State Governor Chibuike Amaechi, when he undertook an inspection tour of the newly constructed Igboukwu Sports Stadium situated opposite the school.
The governor had frowned at the school being erected very close to the main road without adequate parking space.
When contacted, secretary of the school who spoke under condition of anonymity said the church authorities were taken unawares by the demolition.
She added that Governor Amaechi had in November 2012, told the school authorities that the building was too close to the road and also lacked adequate car parking space and recreation venue for the students, even as the owners promised to comply with regulations.
