….Calls for State Government immediate intervention

A civil rights organization, the Save Lagos Group (SLG) has reported the Awogboro family to Lagos State Government under the leadership of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu over illegal claimed of ownership of Olakitan Village, popularly known as Olakitan Estate Community Development Association in Agbado Oke-Odo LCDA, Alimosho Local Government area of the State, after the State government had issued Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) to the rightful owner of the Land, the Olakitan family dated 24th day of April,2015.

The civil rights group called for immediate intervention of the State government on the subject matter before it escalated into the breaking down of law and order in the community between the two families, reinstating the call to call Awogboro family to order over the uncontroversial Estate by the State government.

The controversy has been surrounding the land of the village with 27.324 Hectares of land (i.e. 273,240 Square metres) which the State Government had been settled since 24th day of April, 2015 and it was gathered that Olakitan family had occupied the land from the time immemorial as contained in the Plan No. LAT1431/L/77 and disclosed that Olakitan’s family bounded by the Bamigbose family to the North, Ogunseye’s family to the East, Odo-Orojas to the West and Amosu Akin’s family to the South.

It was added that Ogunseye’s family was secretly and illegally selling the land to one Prince Alfred Awogboro in 1977 without the knowledge of the Olakitan’s family which the Lagos State government has settled through the Certificate of Occupancy No- 87/87/2015j, more particularly delineated in the Plan No.LS/D/LKJ.3693, adding the State government stated that ,this Certificate of Occupancy is issued subject to the approved layout Plan No.MPP/DM/14/LP/1110 in the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development.

It further claimed that on the issue of possession of the land claimed by the Awogboro’s family before the Court dated 27th March, 2015, through a Writ of possession and the court had struck out the request by viewing it as incompetent application, cautioning the family of Awogboro to stop breaching the peace of the area, just as the Government had laid the issue of ownership of the Olakitan village to rest through the registration Number 87At Page 87 in Volume 2015J of the Lagos State of Nigeria Land Registry Office, Ikeja.

In a Petition Letter dated Monday 29th of March, 2021 and signed by the Convener, Save Lagos Group (SLG), Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman and copies were made available to newsmen on Wednesday, calling for quick intervention of the State government on the subject matter.

The Letter was forwarded to the State Governor, the State House of Assembly through the Speaker, Honourable Mudasiru Obasa and State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice.

According to the Letter: “We are fervently believed that it has become imperative since Awogboro family and its members refused to believe in the rule of law court order/judgment and Certificate of Occupancy(C of O).As Awogboro family is planning to metamorphose the issue into criminal nature of contempt of Court judgment/order and State document of Certificate of Occupancy(C of O)”.

He, therefore, alleged that Awogboro family were working round the clock to take over the estate after their co-travelers, Ogunseye
family sold their land to Nigeria Army in the 70s.
