Segun Ayinde, Abeokuta
Residents of Leposo, Imogun and Igbogbo communities in Sagamu Local Government Area of Ogun State have raised the alarm over the alleged invasion of 1008 hectares of land belonging to the communities by one Chief Kamurudeen Lamina a.k.a Sir K Oluwo and others.
A member of the community, Chief Nurudeen Alowonle Adesanya, who spoke on behalf of the communities, fingered Sir k Oluwo as the prime invader, who was said to have been invited by one Otunba Olukoya Adeleke Adedoyin that claimed to have bought all the land in the three communities.
Adesanya explained that the land is located on sagamu Ikorodu road in the Sagamu local Government Area of Ogun State where LAFARGE CEMENT WAPCO NIGERIA PLC is situated.
He added that there was a judgement against the LAFARGE CEMENT WAPCO NIGERIA PLC and Ogun State Government on the land in April, 2018 holding at Sagamu judicial division before Hon Justice E.O.Osinuga.
Adesanya alleged that he was surprised when chief Adedoyin started claiming the land belonging to the three communities – Leposo, Imogun and Igbogbo community in Sagamu Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The elder explained further that Otunba Adedoyin bought only eight hectares of Land from one of the family members who claims that the Ogun state government has paid him all compensation when the state government took over the land from the family.
“We want the general public to know that Land belongs to Leposo, Imogun and Igbogbo family and not chief Adedoyin as claimed by him”.
Many people have been invading the land claiming they have certificate of occupancy on some parts of the land while Sir k oluwo is claiming that all the land belong to chief Adedoyin, The land is about 1008 hectares.” he added.
Unconfirmed information at the disposal of the three communities revealed that chief Lamina a.k.a sir k Oluwo claimed he bought the Land from different families whom he said were all dead.
Sir k Oluwo was also said to have claimed that he is the owner of the expanse of land that spread across the three communities in the area.
Chief Adesanya therefore appealed to the Inspector General of Police Kayode Egbetokun, Ogun State Police command, CP Abiodun Alamutu and Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State to look into the matter in order to avoid any untoward problem in the community.
