Oba-elect distances self from land grabber’s activities

Oba-elect of Akin­lowo Olaife Royal family in Alimo­sho Local Government Area of Lagos State, Baba­tunde Ismaila Ahmed, has distanced himself from activities of one Alhaji Abdul-Rauf Tijani, who he alleged was a notori­ous land grabber whose activities in Shasha area should be condemned by well-meaning Nigerians resident in the area.

The Oba-elect made this known when he ad­dressed members of the press in his palace in La­gos recently.

In a two-page petition addressed to the Honor­able Attorney General/ Commissioner for Justice for Lagos State, which he read to pressmen, he noted that he was con­strained to make the fol­lowing clarifications over the actions of hoodlums as well as that of Alhaji Abdul Tijani in recent times.

He averred that the suit instituted at the Federal High Court in Lagos some months ago relates to the fundamental enforcement proceedings, for the pro­tection of the fundamen­tal rights of himself and that of the 2nd, 3rd and 5th applicants over the harassment and intimida­tion by the 1st and 6th re­spondents, the Inspector- General of Police and the Commissioner of Police (SFU) at the behest of the 10th and 11th respondents, Oba Babatunde Akanbi Lawal and Tajudeen Us­man Akano, respectively.

He also averred that the said suit, is a fallout of the tussle over the kingship of Shasha community, in the Alimosho Local Govern­ment Area, Lagos State and not claims of owner­ship of any sort, as being paraded by the 7th appli­cants Alhaji Abdul Rauf Tijani and his agents and so he detest the actions of the 7th applicant herein, in his bid to wrestle pos­session from occupants of Millennium estate Afon­ka, Shasha without lawful justifications or colour of title whatsoever.

He revealed that soon after the 7th applicant in­vaded the estate aforesaid as well as other proper­ties belonging to his an­cestral family, Akinlowo Olaife family from time immemorial, a section of the family took steps to forestall the illegal claims aforesaid noting that the matter is still pending in court in suit No (ID/1632LMW/2015) against the 7th applicant in that regard.

The Oba-elect noted that the actions and in­action of Alhaji Tijani by stationing hoodlums and miscreants who have caused residents of mil­lennium estate Afonka both bodily harm and loss of properties as un­fortunate and regrettable stressing that Tijani has no business medley in a property that belonged to the Akinlowo Olaife Royal Family of Shasha as he is not related in any manner with the royal family.
