A Lagos State High Court sitting in Epe has ordered a firm, Toll Systems Development Co. Ltd to recover possession of the 1,561 hectares of land in Lakowe Village, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos.

The order was given in a Suit No. LD/4320/2014 before Justice Muftau Olokoba, pursuant to an application for possession entered by the Toll Systems Development Co. Ltd against the defendant, an’unknown person’.

And the application was supported by a 20-paragraph affidavit and a seven-paragraph further affidavit filed and deposed to by Mr. Adewale Odutola of 1, Mekunwen Road, Off Oyinkan Abayomi Drive, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The applicant averred that Toll Systems Development Co. Ltd was the genuine owner of the 1,561 hectares by virtue of a Certificate of Occupancy No: 17/7/2003T dated October 27, 2003.

The claimant’s counsel Mr. Ola Faro urged the court to grant the firm possession “from any person who occupies the lands without the consent or permission of the claimant.”
