Engineer reclaims land from trespassers


Following the judgment of an Ogun State High Court delivered on March 8, 2016, an engineer, Godwin, Airuoyuwa has reclaimed his land in Ota local government area of the state.

Airuoyuwa, who is the first plaintiff in the case, had sued six defendants for themselves and on behalf of the Irawa family of Ilogbo praying among others, that the defendants deliver possession of the land to the claimants.

The parcel of land measuring approximately 13.292 Acres shown in survey plans No. OG/1407/2007.017 dated August 5, 2007 annexed to and covered by Certificate of Occupancy No. 0035504 registered as No. 37/37/810 dated November 21, 2013 is situated on Irawa family land along Agana Road, near Ilogbo-Ota, Ado-Ado/Ota Local Government Area, Ogun State.

According to the claimant, he acquired and paid for the parcel of land with receipts from different members of the family between June 10, 2005 and August 10, 2007.

“The land was developed for farming with farmhouses, a borehole, fishponds, pigsties and irrigation canals and farming activities in commercial quantities without hindrance until 2014.

“Some hoodlums armed with offensive weapons stormed the land sometime in May 2014 and chased away the workers, destroyed their crops and carted away pigs including the generator. They eventually partitioned and sold out a large part of the land,” he stated.

This development, he said prompted the plaintiff to go to court in July 2015 to reclaim their land, asking the court to order the defendants to vacate and deliver up possession of the land.

He got judgment in his favour and levied execution February 14, 2018.
