If you want my sincere opinion, I will say this cannot be true but mischief makers are spreading the rumour that Juju maestro, King Sunny Ade was recently evicted from his Tawa Aliu Bello Street, Omole Estate Phase 11 duplex. According to the rumour, the eviction was carried out by detached Sheriff Assistants of the High Court of Lagos State and it lasted four hours.
Before this rumour began to spread, the duplex served as the office of one of the foremost Juju musician’s investment, KSA Investment. The landlord, according to sources had filed legal papers to have the award winning Juju musician evicted from his office which also doubled as the apartment of one of his sons popularly known as Oba and daughter, Kemi.
Sources informed that the duplex owned by a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) Chief Ebenezer Babatope, whose daughter occupies the other wing of the duplex, has filed a suit sometime in July, 2011 against KSA Investment in a bid to have the company evicted, insisting she wanted to take possession and in response to this notice, KSA’s staff and his son, Oba moved some valuable items from the duplex, while negotiating for time and possibly a rescind of the decision to evict them.
About five months after, the landlady got a judgment against their continued stay in the duplex on Monday, 19th December 2011. Led by a police officer, four sheriff assistants detailed from the High Court of Lagos moved into the property and met Oba, who was presented the court order and after all persuasions failed, they moved in and started to remove and clear the apartment of KSA’s belonging.
It took nearly four hours before the Sheriff Assistants finally took legal possession of the property. Speechless and helpless, Oba made frantic calls before the General Manager of King Sunny Ade’s organization, Charles Ogundipe arrived the scene.
Before his arrival, a blue CABSTAR truck drove into the premises and carried their belongings.The various items, claimed our source,were later moved to King Sunny Ade’s personal mansion situated at No 1, Osokoya Street in the same estate.
