No fewer than 50 houses situated at Kudeti Street, Akora Villa, Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja, Lagos State have been marked for demolition by the Ministry of Physical planning and Urban Development.

This followed the decision of the  Lagos Land Grabbers Taskforce, which looked into a petition by the Akinniyi Family on a disputed land between it and the Akinole Oshiun family.

The houses on the streets affected include Oluyemisi Olajide Street, Oluyemisi Olajide Close, Kudeti Street, Adebola Adenuga Court and Awori Close.

They were adjudged illegal structures not in conformity with building regulations.

Akinniyi family’s lawyer, Mrs Yetunde Fashesin-Souza, told reporters that a petition was written to the state’s Ministry of Justice, Land Grabber Task force  unit between 2017 and 2018 on behalf of Akinniran’s family against Akinole Oshiun’s family.

She said both families were invited to a peace meeting at Alausa, Ikeja, where they were asked to furnish the office the title documents to aid the investigation.

Part of the minutes of the meeting held with the parties reads thus.

She said: “At the last meeting on the 23rd May, 2018 the coordinator noted that  both parties agreed with this office to submit their Survey Plans and Title Documents.”

According to her, “The coordinator stated that this office investigated the title claimed by both parties by requsting for Certified True Copies from office of the Registrar of  Title, Lagos for instruments tendered which were registered as 22/22/1394 and 95/95/1967, both of which were sent to us.”’

”The coordinator also informed the parties that this office then  wrote to the office of the Surveyor-General requesting that a composite survey plan be done using  the survey plan in the registered title documents sent to us from the registrar of titles.

”Parties were shown copies of the composite plan done with the report stating that there is an overlap on the land of both parties, however, the land in dispute fall solely within the expanse of land belonging to the Akinniran family (petitioners).

”Given out it verdict, the coordinator said as far as this office is concerned our work in respect of this matter is done as it is evident from our investigation that the Akinniran family should be in possession of the land and any disturbance of their enjoyment of possession should be reported to this office for necessary action to be taken”.

Mrs Fashesin-Souza added: “The first notice had been given and the second notice had also be given on 27th May, 2021 so as to give enough room for the illegal occupants on the encroached three acres of land room to tender their title documents to the appropriate authority to avoid demolition of their properties if not strictly complied with.
