Court Bars IGP From Arresting Oba Elegushi by SamuelOamen: 5:59pm On Jul 15, 2021

A Lagos High Court sitting at Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) on Thursday barred the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) from arresting the Elegushi of Ikate Kingdom in Lagos Oba Shaheed Ademola Elegushi and two others.

Justice Gafar Safari ruled the order subsists pending the hearing and determination of a fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by them.

The judge made the order in a suit by the monarch and two members of the Elegushi royal family - Chief Abdulahi Elegushi and Prince Akeem Elegushi - accusing the defendants of harassment, manhunt and attempt to arrest them over a civil land matter.

Joined alongside the IGP are Bela Vista Property and Development Company Ltd; Deputy Commissioner of Police, Kolo Yusuf; DSP Ibrahim Agu; one Supol Udofia and Lagos Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice as the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th respondents respectively.

The royal family also accused the respondents of an alleged plot to grab land belonging to the family at the Eti-Osa Local Government Area (LGA).

The applicants alleged while the suit is pending the defendants resorted to self-help, including by detailing mobile policemen from Mopol 46 to the land with instruction to arrest any member of Elegushi royal family found anywhere on or near the land.

They further accused th IG of forging a police report that was presented to the court ceding ownership of their land to Bela Vista property.

At the resumed hearing of the matter on Thursday, the monarch and his co-applicants, through their lawyer, Mrs. Adepeju Omotayo, informed the judge the police had sent its men to Ikate seeking to arrest them to frustrate the case before the court.

But the first respondent's counsel, Anthony Osara, denied the police had sent its men to arrest the applicants.

The counsel to the second to fifth respondents, Victor Okoye, also urged the court to discountenance the applicants' request for a restraining order, adding the police were never deployed to the house of the royal family to arrest anybody.

In a bench ruling, Justice Safari ordered all the parties to maintain status quo and refrain from doing anything to frustrate the proceedings pending the hearing and determination of the suit.

He adjourned till August 17 for hearing.

Please when they eventually arrest him, they should make him refund all the monies his boys made us pay before we could access a public beach.

It's funny how one family lays claim to land almost as big as a LGA and everybody keeps quiet.
It can NEVER happen where I am from.
