Court to rule on homeowners application against CMB on Oct. 19
JUSTICE Abisoye Bashua of a Lagos High Court sitting in Epe will on October 19, 2015 rule on an interlocutory application filed by Homeowners within the Pearl Garden Estate situated at Sangotedo Village in Eti-Osa Local Government Area of the state against a property developer, Oyetubo Jokotade Estate Resource Limited.
The claimants had instituted a suit against the property developer and CMB Building Maintenance and Investment Company Limited, which is in charge of providing estate management services to them before the court over alleged incessant harassment and imposition of arbitrary charges.
The N100 million suit was filed by Messrs Francis Adesuyi, Felix Obiakor, Martin Ajayi-Obe and Peter Afenotan on behalf of themselves and all interested homeowners within the Pearl Garden Estate.
The presiding judge after listened to the arguments of counsel on both sides adjourned ruling till October 19,2015. The claimants in their application prayed the court for an Order of Interlocutory Injunction restraining the defendants and their agents from harassing or restricting the movement of the homeowners within the estate, pending the hearing an determination of the substantive suit.
They also asked for:”an Order of Interlocutory Injunction restraining the defendants and their agents from interfering with the rights of the homeowners in providing safe and drinkable water for themselves and their family members,pending the hearing an determination of the substantive suit.
However, defendants counsel, Mr Gabriel Uwaifo in his response refuted the claim that the water being supplied by his client was not hygienic, posited that the claimants violated the sales agreement by refusing to make payments to the defendants. He therefore asked the court to dismiss the application for being grossly misconceived.
