The Ojora family have just secured a full legal repossession of the Iganmu community after 37 years of serial legal battle. Well informed sources informed encomium magazine that the family eventually executed an order of the Supreme Court to repossess the land from the said community. The execution of the order was carried out by a Lagos State high court sherriff, under the supervision of over 150 armed policemen.
The Supreme Court had reportedly declared the Ojora family as the legitimate owner of Iganmu community. And by that order, over 50, 000 houses and buildings, including some occupied by blue-chip companies, are to be taken over. The companies include First Bank Plc, Nigerian Ropes, Thomas Wyatt, Power Holding Company of Nigeria (also known as NEPA) and Nigeria Breweries Pls. The affected corporate organisations and residents in the affected area had been dully notified of the court judgement and of the need for them to rectify their titles with family before the enforcement of the order. The villages affected by the court order include Orile Iganmu, Aloko, Savage, Coker, Ajabe, Oko Olodi among others.
Hmmm, now that’s something.
Ado Odo/Ota boils. 30 houses razed. 10 feared dead.
It was weeping and wailing, combined with gawking and gnashing of teeth in Ado Odo/Ota Local Govt area of Ogun State as 30 houses, including the palace of the Oba-elect of Ijoko/Ota, Oba Fatai Matanmi, with properties worth millions of naira, were razed. Ten persons are also believed to have lost their lives in the mayhem. Encomium mag investigations revealed that the Awori and the Owu in Ijoko/Ota are enmeshed in a battle of supremacy over the stool of the Onijoko and a parcel of land on which the Supreme Court had ruled three years ago. According to Encomuim sources, trouble started in the early hours of Tuesday July 28th, when some miscreants and hoodlums allegedly working for the Olowu, imposed a coronet king, one chief Ogunseye. They laid siege on Ijoko, razing 30 houses including the palace of the Oba elect. It took the intervention of a detachment of anti-riot policemen, including men of the gateway rapid response squad, mobile and conventional policemen, led by Sango Ota DPO, to restore law and order.
