My House Is About To Be Demolished, What Should I Do? by Moneyboyz: 1:02pm On Mar 23
I bought this land last year and developed it this year, Still paying some debts I owe cause the money I had couldn't take it to roofing level so I had to borrow to complete it once and for all.
I'm still praying for God to provide so I can pay off debts and get money to roof the 3 bedroom flat when I received a call from the person I put in charge that people from the ministry of housing are about to demolish the whole house in that area in 7 days.
As I am right now I'm not feeling alright, I don't know what might happen to me if this eventually happens cause na my life savings I put for there.
Property located in ifo/arigbajo Ogun state.

Two options are available in my own opinion

All of you should go to court and secure an injunction as soon as possible.

Or

You can also gather others and lead a protest to the government House or office so that the government can help you guys out by allocating another plot elsewhere

This is one of the sacriest thing in Nigeria.

I still remember one man named Mr. Ariwoko that was very active on one particular radio program back then in Ogun state had same issue with his property. They served him noticed for 2weeks and he was pleading bad pushing the issue over the media and everywhere in btw that period maybe there would be a solution. so and I was listening to the program that day when he called in and said his house was being demolished right infront of him as he speak..It was very painful to listen to a family man going through all that and the memories still plays in my head till today.

I do not know what one can do in this situation but I will suggest you and other people affected should seek a lawyer's opinion.
It's sad we living in a lawless country where govt do anyhow over the masses.

I pray you overcome this obstacle and find peace.

Amen, thanks bro.
Mine is even better, some are living there already, a woman used aluminium sheets, sticks and nylon to build her own just to see someplace to sleep, I can only imagine what she's going through right now.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if it's Ogshc, it is best to take heart cos they don't negotiate. It will be demolished, maybe not now but eventually.

I'm very sorry for your experiences. Please next time do a search at the land registry to be sure the land is not under government acquisition.

Any money I see from now on I will just leave this shit hole Country for good.

There are no signboard of government acquisition, not everyone knows where to go about these things, this is my second land investment going down the drain ��

With the experience of what happened in 2019, you would have made proper check with the relevant authorities on this new one before purchasing it

Estate land( like adrons home,revolution plus e.t.c ) is just the best. might be more expensive but usually no issues.

If you believe you bought the property in good faith and clean hands, go and get a lawyer to get an Exparte order for you as soon as possible restraining them atleast to arrest the situation for the time being.

Nothing can be done ooo, infact we have this scenario in abuja were people buy land from native and build house hoping to recoup there money unfortunately some of this property are demolished. No amount of court injuction will stop government. The moral of everything is always do the right thing and act right

What tittle does property bear? As in did you register the said property.


Just read the notice that was given to you , in it ogun state housing agency stated that your building is an illegal encroachment on their property.

honestly we nigerians are fond of purchasing property without consulting legal firms or estates developers, someone will just put piece of land towards next minutes you start paying over something you don't really know.

Before you part with your money over a property always carry out a "Search" on it once done you will not only know the originality of the said property, if the land is an encroachment search will reveal it..
