Lagos Tackles Omo-onile With Task Force by 247frolicboss(m): 6:28pm On Jun 27, 2016
The Lagos State Government on Monday set up a Task Force to check the menace of land-grabbing in the State, just at it vowed to tackle the activities of land grabbers popularly calledOmo-Onile with the full deployment of resources of government and applicable law once and for all.

Speaking while inaugurating the Task Force, the State’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem, said the administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode is determined to apply the full weight of the law to permanently address the issue, adding that the havoc and unrest being caused by land grabbers was no longer acceptable.

He said henceforth, anybody who uses threat of arms or physical threat to dispossess people of their legitimate property will be treated as criminals in accordance with Sections 52, 53 and 281 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State.

The Commissioner said it was noteworthy that Section 281 of the criminal law included land as things capable of being stolen, while Sections 52 and 53 of the law prescribe a jail term of two years for any person who forcibly enters or takes possession of land in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace against a person entitled by law to the possession of the land.

According to Kazeem: “In recent years, land grabbers have caused havoc and unrest in different parts of the State by dispossessing legitimate land-owners of their properties thereby stifling commercial activities in the State.

“It is therefore important that the State Government not only indentifies the effects of the problems being perpetrated by these unscrupulous elements on commercial activities and peace of the citizenry but also finds lasting solutions to the menace. That is the reasoning behind the set-up of this Task Force.

“Furthermore, the need to protect investors and maintain law and order also led to the setting up of the Committee. This, by implication, will encourage the verification of legal claims through litigation rather than resorting to violence,” the Attorney General explained.

The Task Force, according to Kazeem, can be reached on 09096667123 and 09020085005 and on email address via omoonileTF@lagosstate.gov.ng.

Kazeem also disclosed that the State House of Assembly was in the process of passing a law that would exclusively deal with the activities of land grabbers by prescribing appropriate stiff punishment for offenders.

The terms of reference of the Task Force which will operate under the supervision of the Attorney General include: “To reduce to a barest minimum the activities of persons or corporate entities who use force and intimidation to dispossess or prevent any person or entity from acquiring legitimate interest and possession of property acquired through State Government or private transactions; to co-ordinate the efforts of the various agencies of Government charged with enforcing the State Government rights over land in Lagos; and to work with all security agencies to ensure enforcement of State Government and private property rights in Lagos State.”

Members of the Task Force are Mr. Akinjide Bakare, a Deputy Director in the Ministry of Justice who will act as Alternate Chairman; Dr. Afolabi Abiodun representing the Commissioner for the Environment; Mr. Olayinka Wasiu Adebayo and Mr. Faiq Abou both representing the Lands Bureau; Mr. Saheed Kassim, Chief Security Officer to Governor Ambode; Mr. Ganiyu Adebowale, Commander of Governor’s Monitoring Team (GMT) and Ms Mosunmola Balogun, who is to act as the Secretary of the Task Force.

Responding on behalf of members of the Task Force, Mr. Bakare pledged that though the terms of reference was a very onerous task, the Committee would rest on the might of the State Government.

He said already petitions had been received from several citizens including retired civil servants, who had served the State meritoriously, adding that it was pathetic that some people could forcibly dispossess people of their legitimate property, the more reason, according to him, why the Task Force would vigorously pursue the cause.

This is long overdue!!!

The land grabbers often time have the backing of the local traditional rulers with whom they share their ill-gotten proceeds.

Ogun and other SW states should follow suit.

Bravo to Ambode. Ekiti people would love you to govern them for a week.

Great! I love this.

Now, one can buy a land from the owner and keep the receipt without fear of it being stolen. For Lagos, if you want your land to be secured after buying it, you'll have to get the receipt from the owner and the family, do a government survey, do foundation, then fence it round! Ah ah!! Just to secure the land o0oo!! I have the family receipt and I've done foundation and fencing on my land, yet my dad is still worrying me to go do the government survey just to be on an safer side.

Eko no go Baje under Ambode, lailai!!!!

Seun should as a matter of urgency set up tasks force on Nairaland Omoniles too. They abound here. Creating unnecessary tension via crudest of bigotry ever known to mankind.
