Association asks AMCON to stop inflicting hardship on homeowners
Lekki Estates Residents And Stakeholders Association (LERSA) has called on Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) to recognise the property titles and stop inflicting heartache and hardship on home and landowners in Victory Park, Goshen Beach Estates and other developments in Lekki who purchased their properties without any encumbrances known to law
LERSA, the umbrella body of residents associations of over 77 gated estates from 1004 Estate area down to Epe, has added its voice to Lekki residents and property owners’ condemnation of the inhuman treatment of homeowners, who are being thrown out of their homes in Victory Park Estate, Goshen Beach Estate and other Estates in Lekki by AMCON, with the use of heavily armed policemen and a group of fierce looking unidentified armed men.
It stated that several families had been forced out of their homes, with mothers and children left out in the rain, with little or no notice at mid-day, when most residents had gone to work.
The body said: “LERSA reiterated the fact that residents and property owners in the affected Estates bought into gated Estate Schemes like most estate development Schemes in the Lekki axis of Lagos State.
“These properties are widely publicised, and in the case of GOSHEN Beach Estate, the sale was a joint venture between the developer and Lagos State Development and Property Corporation (LSDPC), thus giving comfort and confidence to would-be subscribers and buyers that they are credible and the titles are free from any encumbrance.
“It is appalling and devastating to buy into a state government sanctioned transaction, only to have homes and life sustaining facilities like sewage treatment, borehole and recreation area forcibly sealed up, almost 20 years after purchase.”
