Community assures residents of safety


Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode

A community leader in Igbo-Efon, Eti-Osa Local Government of Lagos State, Chief Atiku Abogun, has appealed to residents and property owners in the area not to panic over the planned implementation of a Lagos High Court judgment on the ownership of Igbo-Efon land.

A Lagos High Court sitting in Ikeja and presided over by Justice K.O. Alogba, had on December 12, 2016 delivered a landmark judgment in suit no LD/826/2007 instituted by Chief Atiku Abogun and others against Bamidele Jemiyo and Ojomu Chieftaincy family that Igbo-Efon is the rightful owners of all the land situated in the community and not customary tenants of the Ojomu Chieftaincy family.

According to Abogun, the planned implementation is not to witch-hunt or dispossesses people of their property.

He, however, advised property owners, who illegally acquired land in the community, to meet with the leaders and their representatives for amicable settlement or risk losing such.
