Businessman Seeks Sanwo-Olu’s Intervention In Property Dispute

Mr. Olaide Adebowale Omotola, Group Managing Director of Master’s Reality International Concept, has petitioned Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, over a grand plan to evict him from a property he purchased about four years ago on Iju Road, Agege.

According to Omotola’s petition, those who want to take his landed property are using the state government’s apparatus to do so.

Omotola noted that those who sold him the land testified before a committee set up by the Ministry of Justice to handle the land grabbing case brought against him that he bought the land from the landowners.

He said to dispossess him of the land, he was allegedly called by a land grabber and it was based on this that the structure, still under construction, was pulled down by the Lagos State Special Taskforce on Land Grabbing.

He maintained that the matter is not a case of land grabbing as being made to look like, but that of a land dispute. Omotola alleged that aside plans to dispossess him of the property, there was also an attempt to cow him with legal process.

Reacting, the state Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General, Moyosore Onigbanjo, yesterday, denied the allegation, saying that Justice Olatunde Oshodi had issued a warrant of arrest on Omotola but he refused to present himself before the court.

Onigbanjo added that the allegations against him and others by Omotola were blackmails aimed at helping Omotola to escape facing his charges.

“If indeed the documents were forged as he alleged, why not go to court and make a case for the charges to be dismissed based on his allegations. We will issue a full statement later.”

“The reason for the above is because I demanded for a compensation of N76 million for the demolition of my property and for me not to get this, there is a grand plan to discredit me, embarrass me and put me in custody.

“I will not be intimidate because I am a stakeholder in the state, am a tax-payer and via my company, we have paid over N200 million government fees in 12 months and this can be verified from the account of Masters Reality Intl concepts Ltd. I deserve respect and not intimidation. I hereby call on the governor’s intervention.

“It has become apparent to me how the attorney-general has been hell bent on using the judiciary to embarrass my person and send put me in custody for his own selfish and personal interest,” Omotola alleged.
