Supreme Court Judgment: Panic, As Shangisha Landlords Take Over Highbrow Magodo by afroniger: 9:06am On Dec 22, 2021
December 22, 2021

By Gabriel Olawale

Panic griped landlords and residents of highbrow Magodo area of Lagos metropolis as stern-looking policemen took over the area this afternoon to execute a Supreme Court judgment, which mandated Lagos State government to give back 549 plots to the original owners of the area, before it was “fraudulently acquired over 38 year ago”.

As the anti-riot policemen were on strategic area within the highbrow area, more than 1,000 youths, apparently recruited by the Shangisha Landlords Association, were moving from house to house making known the possession.

The inscription on each houses indicated that the court had given them possession of the land on which the houses were built.


It could be recalled that the military government of the state then acquired the area for public use.

But later it was sold to government officials and their associates, which made the original owners through Shangisha Landlords Association approach the high court for redress.


The court then ruled that both parties should maintain the status quo in the area; that is both parties should vacate the land until final determination of the case.

But in disregard of the court order, the state government continued to sell the land.

The high court eventually, in its final judgment, ordered the state government to give the Association and its members 549 plot of land as a matter of first priority.

Dissatisfied with the high court judgment, the government approached the Appeal Court which affirmed the judgment of the lower court on the matter.

It ordered that Lagos state should, as a matter of first priority, give back 549 plots of land to the original land owners in the Association of Shangisha landlords.

The matter went on to the Supreme Court, which also affirmed the judgment of lower courts.

The Supreme Court judgment was handed down six years ago, but Lagos State government refused to execute the judgment.

The police storm the area at about 2.30p.m. on Tuesday, to maintain law and order while marking of the houses by a court bailiff was ongoing.

As at the time of filing this report, confusion and panic pervaded the whole area.

Many of the landlords said they bought their land from Lagos State government, adding that they were not aware of litigation on the land when they bought the land for which they were given certificate of occupancy.

Videos, pictures and screenshots: Residents cannot leave the estate this morning. There's a protest going on and some residents have locked the estate gate. Nobody is allowed in or out.

It was during military rule in the 90s Governor Oyinlola (reknown thief) took over this land forcefully from its owners and sold it to others.

This judgement has been finalized at the supreme Court since 2012 so the house owners dt built there are aware of this. Some people already sold their houses to unsuspecting new buyers and moved, but everytime the real owners want to execute their supreme Court judgement, the rich people living there always stop it.
The real landowners came to an agreement wt the house owners in 2017 (https://www.thisdaylive.com/index.php/2017/05/30/scourt-judgement-shangisha-landlords-association-advise-homeowners-to-rectify-titles/), but it seems some have not fulfilled their part of the agreement.
