Some land grabbers backed by officers of Lagos State Authorities and Safety personels have invaded a property at No 1 Folurunsho Kuku Avenue, Off Agbaoku, Opebi and demolished identical however a certificates of occupancy, CofO, and a court docket order barring them from doing so.
In an SOS focused on the State Authorities of Lagos State, Social Proper Crusader and former Vice President of the Nigerian Bar Affiliation, Monday Ubani Esq, narrated how brokers of the Lagos State Authorities from state Ministry of transport, invaded his shoppers property and demolished identical after boasting of being above the Legislation.
Beneath is Mr Ubani’s SOS.
As we speak the thirty first of December, 2020 I began to lose religion as soon as once more within the nation known as Nigeria. I grew to become alarmed as a result of it’s starting to seem that MIGHT IS RIGHT regardless of the correct of the sufferer!
Few months in the past some males led by one “Engr” Abiodun Ariori and few others working in cahoot with different land grabbers invaded a chunk of land situate and mendacity at No 1 Folurunsho Kuku Avenue, Off Agbaoku, Opebi lined with a certificates of occupancy obtained since 1989 belonging to a consumer firm owned by a recognized Nigerian. The invasion was with thugs and mopol personnel who I perceive are males he makes use of to information himself and his enterprise.
I went to the land and confirmed the invasion. I enquired from the Mopol personnel underneath whose authority they invaded the land, they answered they have been underneath the directions of 1 Abiodun Ariori.
I reported the matter to the Nigerian Police Drive and so they have been arrested. When requested why they invaded the land of another person, Mr Abiodun Ariori began to brandish a purported supreme court docket judgement that was delivered since 1990.
I sought and obtained the judgement and discovered that the judgement has nothing to do with the stated land in query. The judgement was in respect of a chunk of property in Onigbagbon Space of Ikeja the place Eko Hospital is presently located. My consumer’s land is at 1 Folurunsho Kuku Avenue, Off Agbaoku that’s a number of kilometres away from the stated land in Onigbagbon with a certificates of occupancy obtained in 1989. Apart from, whether it is judgement of court docket they got here to implement, they ought to make use of the Courtroom Sheriffs and officers for the enforcement and never thugs and males of Mopol.
Since it’s a land matter, I suggested myself that court docket motion shall be applicable. I sued and joined all of the folks that claimed that they have been implementing a supreme Courtroom judgement by invading the land. They have been duly served personally and by substituted means. After they refused to seem or reply to the claims and reliefs of my consumer, the court docket granted an injunction in opposition to them. The injunction was additionally served and pasted on the property. The swimsuit No is ID/6199/LMW/2020.
Up until now that I’m typing this piece, Mr Abiodun Ariori and his gang of land grabbers have refused to file any response to the declare. Slightly they’ve been boasting that they personal Lagos and that they have been those that put in the current authorities and they’ll train the proprietor of the land that they personal all people right here in Lagos.
Per week in the past, we woke as much as see and listen to that allegedly Ministry of Transport and Surroundings got here to stick Discover that the mechanics who’re there legitimately on the occasion of the proprietor ought to vacate there inside 48 Hours. We’ve got photos of the Discover pasted on all of the automobiles and on the property by the Ministry of Transport.
I instantly known as the Commissioner of Transport, Lagos, an ideal gentleman who picked my calls and requested that investigation be performed on who in his ministry was behind it. I later discovered that one Hon Fayinka within the Ministry of Transport was working with the land grabbers to take over the land illegitimatey. I say this as a result of I put a name throughout to the stated Hon Fayinka and he boasted to me that they’re coming to take over the land very quickly as they’re appearing on directions from greater quarters.
I instantly wrote to the Commissioner of Transport and copied his Everlasting Secretary of what the Ministry was about to do. I’m but to obtain a response to the letter as I’ve proof that it was delivered.
As we speak being the thirty first of December 2020 I acquired a name from the Mechanics on web site that Lagos State Officers from the Governor’s Workplace, Enforcement Unit invaded the land with caterpillars, vehicles, towing vans and over 150 police officers and thugs and beat and arrested everybody on web site. They beat these mechanics to stupor, arrested them and put them in black Maria and got down to tow all of the automobiles away to Alausa. They used the caterpillar to destroy the whole lot on web site, pulled down some erected buildings therein and padlocked the place. Actually as I sort all of the automobiles are at Alausa within the Ministry of Transport.
To compound the case they got here with the land grabbers who have been boasting that they’ve taught the proprietor a lesson that they personal lagos and they’re about to begin constructing on the land regardless of the court docket order.
I’ve spoken to the Commissioners of Transport Hon Oladeinde and Surroundings, gentleman Mr Tunji Bello who’ve all denied data of the invasion.
I’ve additionally spoken to the Chairman of Lagos State Job Drive who can be apparently not conscious of this unlawful operation of utilizing state equipment to hold out private ambition of infamous land grabbers.
Presently they’ve padlocked the non-public property and guarantee thugs are hanging round with harmful weapons to hurt anybody that wishes to enter into the property. All of the automobiles have been towed to Lagos State Ministry of Transport.
For God’s sake, is that this tips on how to implement court docket judgement if any? Why would a citizen in a bid to seize somebody’s land use State equipment, officers and automobiles to seize a land that’s presently a topic of litigation on the State Excessive Courtroom? Why have they refused to file any defence to our motion in court docket, preferring to make use of pressure to take over a property which the court docket has granted an injunction? Are we now again to state of anomie the place may is true, the place the rich and robust destroys the weak and poor?
Please I would like the Governor of Lagos State His Excellency Jide Sanwo Olu to know that they’re utilizing his identify as the individual that authorised the State officers to take over somebody’s land in a matter that’s presently in court docket. In my 30 years of apply as a authorized practitioner, the Governor’s workplace or any State Ministry CAN NEVER AND WILL NEVER BE USED TO EXECUTE COURT’S JUDGEMENT. IT IS THE COURT OFFICIALS THAT ARE EMPOWERED BY LAW TO EXECUTE A VALID COURT’S JUDGEMENT.
Please let this write up go viral till it will get to the ear and eyes of the Governor of Lagos State. We can not enable few unhealthy parts on this State to destroy what Lagos State the Centre of Excellence stands for, NEVER.
The Land grabbers have promised to begin erecting buildings on the land by tomorrow being the first of January, 2021. God will preserve us all alive to see how this brazen impunity shall be allowed to occur right here in Lagos and in NIGERIA!
WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED FRIENDS. HAPPY NEW YEAR IN FEW HOURS.
