Fresh crisis looms in Ilamose, Oke-Afa community

By Onozure Dania
Lagos—Residents of Ilamose, Oke-Afa community in Ejigbo Local Council Development Area, Lagos State, have raised alarm over plans by a Lagos property developer, Alhaji Hakeem Osuolale to invade the community.

Spokesman of the community, Mr Dele Olokobi, who addressed newsmen, weekend, noted there was a court order suspending the execution of an earlier court judgement (Suit No : ID/ 1752/89) in the community.

“Despite our law abiding stance and the fact that many pronouncements have been made by the court, his attorney has continued to harass, intimidate and force residents out of their houses. He continues to forcefully grab people’s undeveloped property,” Olokobi lamented.

When contacted, Osuolale said an agreement was signed between the community and his company in 2016 at the instance of the Ojon of Ejigbo and Ijanland, Oba Moroof Adekunle Ojoola as the mediator.

He advised the property owners to honour the agreement to ratify their property on or before the expiration of the deadline to avoid the demolition of their properties.
