While arrangements were being made to develop the place in accordance with the original plan, Mr. Tee Mac Omatshola Itseli in 2010, clandestinely went to the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and registered ”Performing Musician Association of Nigeria- using the same acronym (PMAN), with which he deceived the FCT authorities that granted him a certificate of occupancy of the said land.
