Residents raise the alarm over security threats, intimidation by land-grabbers
Residents of Oteyi community in Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos State have raised the alarm over security threats and intimidation by some persons, who they alleged connived with land grabbers within the community to inflict pain on them. Kicking against the spate of insecurity and intimidation in the community, the residents lamented that their lives and properties are no longer save.
In a peaceful protest held within the community, The Guardian gathered that a former chairman of the association, Oteyi Resident Association (ORA), who was impeached in 2016 by the association, was alleged to have teamed up with some persons to form a apparel group known as “Fidelity” to harass and cause security breach within the community.
Addressing journalists, speaker for ORA, Okechukwu Onuoha, urged the former president to render proper account of his administration and desist from any act that is inimical to the peace and progress of community. He warned that the only recognised chairman of the community is Maduka Charles Delibe.
A resident and founder of “Concerned members of Oteyi Garden Estate” in the same community, Madubuike Samson, sued for the dissolution of all groups, including Community Development Area (CDA) to create peace. Reacting, chairman of omonile in the community, Teslim Adeshina, said fractional groups outside the original zones should cease to operate while he sorts out issues with the alleged improper fraction.
