The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) will soon commence investigations into the ownership of unoccupied houses in the Federal Capital Territory.

This, according to the agency, is a result of the increase in the number of unoccupied houses in the FCT.

Despite the increase, many residents of the city still find it difficult to secure a decent accommodation.

According to the Federal Capital Territory Administration, the housing deficit for the nation’s capital now hovers around 1.7 and two million.
