It should have been the first thing done because of their dubious ways.. a fence should have been no 1 agenda especially after the first incident.

Get all your papers in order, fence off everything except the woman's development..then start a case to recover the portion she built on while developing the one still in your possession so as to have earnings from it (i don't know your proposed use but with a school behind it means people are there to rent it)

Be prayerful as well for God to help you fight your battle

THE ANTI-LAND GRABBING LAW OF OGUN STATE – ITS EFFECT ON LAND ACQUISITION, LAND SURVEYING AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC
Lawbreed LimitedBY LAWBREED LIMITEDFEBRUARY 13, 2022UPDATED:FEBRUARY 14, 2022NO COMMENTS

• Paper delivered by Honourable Justice Abiodun A. Akinyemi at the Public Lecture organised by the Association of Private Practising Surveyors of Nigeria (Ogun State branch), on Thursday, the 10th of February, 2022, at Abeokuta.

INTRODUCTION
Land is a highly coveted asset.

All over the world, individuals, communities and even nations, attach so much importance to it, because of the vital role it plays in human existence. Man is by nature, a land animal, therefore, without land, he cannot survive. He cannot live in water, or in the sky, but on land. Land is his natural habitat, where he lives and earns his livelihood. Therefore, land is crucial to his existence.

Man is created to have dominion over land. This perhaps explains his fixation with land, hence, his natural instinct to possess and control land, at all cost. Unfortunately, untamed nature and unbridled natural predatory instincts are not always to the benefit of man himself, as it is bound to create more chaos than order, and more harm than good, contrary to the Order of the Creator. Control and possession of land by man is divinely ordained to be orderly, if man is to enjoy the fulness of God’s greatest natural gift to him. That is why Laws exists, to help man tame his natural instincts, including his obsession to possess and control land selfishly, to thee detriment of others.

Land is a symbol of social status, whether in the traditional or modern African society. Its ownership is generally seen as evidence of prosperity. Therefore, many will go to any length to acquire it, so as to be considered among the wealthy and propertied class.

Land availability is critical to the socio-economic development of any society, more so in a state like Ogun, where land is about the most prominent natural resource that the people are blessed with.

With her proximity to Lagos, the economic and commercial capital of Nigeria, and the scarcity and relatively high prices of land in Lagos, land in Ogun State has become a prime asset, chased after, not only by individuals wanting to build their personal houses, but also by business organisations intending to set up factories and business premises, at affordable prices. Unfortunately, the nuisance created by land thugs and unscrupulous land vendors, has become a serious menace and disincentive to the realisation of this dream by many.

Land has become, not just a revenue-yielding resource for its owners, including government, but also a conflict generating factor, to the society at large, arising from the struggle to own or exercise control over a portion of it.

In the olden days, conflict arising from land was easily resolved traditionally, through the intervention of traditional rulers, community heads and respected elders, through the mechanism known as Customary Arbitration, the forerunner of what the world today knows as ADR-Alternative Dispute Resolution. Blood-letting violence was rare, although in few instances, communities went to war over land, especially in the South-Western and South Eastern parts of the Country. Indeed, some of these communal wars over land, are still with us today, notwithstanding intermittent ceasefires. But the scale of forceful dispossession of people of their lands and the use of miscreants and thugs, notoriously referred to as ‘Ajagungbales’, has become brazenly accentuated in recent years, giving serious cause for concern. Many individuals have been maimed, or even lost their lives, by merely daring to visit lands purchased by them, on which armed thugs have been stationed by other people rightly or wrongfully contesting the ownership. Families and communities have lost vital properties to invading land thugs. Even land surveyors, engaged to carry out legitimate professional duties, have been attacked, maimed, kidnapped and even killed by land thugs or rival claimants, for no just cause, and sometimes, without effective repercussions. Embarrassingly, the activities of these land miscreants are not always limited to private land, but are sometimes extended to government -allocated land.

SOME CAUSES OF LAND DISPUTES
The following are some of the reasons why land disputes are rampant in our society, creating room for the nefarious activities of landgrabbers:

1. SCARCITY OF LAND
The demand for land clearly outstrips its availability, especially in urban areas. As is usual in such situations, might over right, became the unwritten code, creating room and advantage for those who are more disposed to the use of force and violence, over the law-abiding.

2. UNTITLED AND UNREGISTERED LAND
Most of the land in Nigeria is untitled and unregistered. There is no register of titles, in which investigated, determined and verified proprietary rights and interests in all land in the state, with the names of their ascertained owners, are recorded. If we had that, all that anyone interested in buying land in any part of the state, including villages, will need to do, would be to simply conduct a search in that register, and he will find the history and ownership details of the land he intends to buy. Also, if we had that, a surveyor, engaged to survey a piece of land, only needs to conduct a search in the register of titles, to be sure that the person who has engaged him, is the legally registered and ascertained owner of the land, so as to save himself from unnecessary attacks. Instead, what we have is a register of land instruments, which merely records documents that are used in land transactions, such as deeds of conveyance, deeds of assignment, certificate of occupancy, power of attorney, etc. These documents are mere evidence of land transactions between one person claiming to be the owner and another claiming to be the purchaser. They do not give an assurance that the title so claimed in them truly and genuinely belongs to the so-called vendor. Only a register of titles can do that. Unfortunately, we do not have it. That is why you have situations in which holding a certificate of occupancy today, is not a guarantee that your title is genuine. Even someone without a single document can legally defeat your claim of ownership to the land, notwithstanding your certificate of occupancy. The detail of this, is outside the purview of this paper. Suffice only to say that because most of our land is untitled and unregistered, proper pre-purchase title investigation by prospective purchasers is impossible. So, despite the best of caution, you may still end up with a disputed title, and being forcibly and violently ejected from the land that you paid so much for.

3. UNCERTAIN AND UNDEFINED BOUNDARIES
Whether genuinely or mischievously, many land owners do not know the exact boundaries of their land, especially with old natural boundary marks disappearing and being disputed. Even in this time and age, some still fail to take advantage of modern surveying, which helps to provide an accurate description of land. Although it is possible to succeed in prosecuting a land case without having a survey plan, (provided you can give a clear and unambiguous description of it, and by calling your boundary men as witnesses), there is no better substitute to having a properly prepared survey plan, by a licensed or registered surveyor. Absence of proper layout plans, may also lead to the alienation of the same plot of land to more than one purchaser, leading to dispute between two or more purchasers.

4. MULTIPLE SALE OF LAND
Some land-owning families are notorious for knowingly selling the same land to more than one purchaser, thus creating conflicts. Sometimes, a sale done by older members of a family, is denied by younger members of the same family, in order to fleece the purchaser of more money, or re-sell the same land to another purchaser who is willing to pay a higher price. Sometimes, it is a case of land agents and those who engaged them, selling the same land to different purchasers, thereby creating conflicts that result in violent efforts by one purchaser against the other, to take possession. Unfortunately, this problem is not limited to private land. Even government allocations suffer this fate, due either to poor record keeping, corruption, incompetence or lack of diligence, on the part of those vested with official responsibilities.

5. INEFFECTIVENESS IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE LAND USE ACT

While the Land Use Act has noble intentions, its implementation has not largely achieved the desired results. Most of the mischief in land transactions intended to be cured by the Act are still with us today, principal amongst which, is in accessibility to land by genuine investors. Many genuine investors and private individuals still find it hard to have easy access to trouble-free land. The effrontery of landgrabbers and the notorious activities of many land vendors is a testimony to the failure of the Land Use Act, in this respect. Acquisition of land, even from government, is still a nightmare, not to talk of purchases from private owners. The failure of government to properly and effectively implement the provisions of the Land Use Act, is what has largely contributed to, and encouraged the menace of land grabbing and dubious land vendors. Indeed, landgrabbers are effectively selling government acquired and government allocated land in many parts of the state, as if in celebration of the failure of the provisions of the Land Use Act. Many people allocated land by government, are unable to take physical possession, after several years, even after paying and meeting all requirements.

5. ORAL HISTORY
Customary land ownership is founded predominantly, on traditional oral history, passed down from generation to generation, dating back sometimes, to time beyond human memory. As the history of the land is passed down, memories fail, and distortions occur. Imposters, or land grabbers, take advantage of this, and somehow, re-tell the story, locating themselves within a family that they really have no connection with, thereby laying claim to land that never belonged to their ancestors. When a court is confronted with competing evidence of traditional history, it is enjoined by law, to decide in favor of the party whose version appears more credible and probable. Unfortunately, an impostor may be able to tell a more convincing story than the genuine owner, and end up with a judgment in his favour against the genuine owner, whose story is true, but badly or incoherently told to the court.

THE “PROHIBITION OF FORCIBLE OCCUPATION OF LANDED PROPERTIES, ARMED ROBBERY, KIDNAPPING, CULTISM AND OTHER ANTI-VIOLENCE AND RELATED OFFENCES LAW 2016”, OF OGUN STATE.
The Law was passed in 2016, with a commencement date of November 14, 2016. As can be seen from its title, it covers much more than land-related crimes, though, it has become more known in respect of land related crimes. Indeed, it is more popularly referred to as the ‘Anti-Land Grabbing Law’. The simple rationale behind the law, (contained in Part 1 of it, comprising of Sections 3 to 14), is to put an end to, or reduce to the barest minimum, land-related violence. Generally, our laws frown at self-help, even where the one resorting to it, has a legitimate right to assert or protect. In a society governed by law, no one, howsoever highly placed, is expected to take the law into his own hands, no matter the level of his hurt.
Going through the Law, it can also be seen that it is an attempt to remedy some of the loopholes in land litigation, usually exploited by mischievous litigants, to foist a ‘fait accompli’ upon the courts, or frustrate their opponents through technicalities and long delays. It is a notorious fact that land litigation drags, despite judicial best efforts, and some litigants take advantage of this, to harass and intimidate their opponents, forcing some to abandon their claims out of fear or harm. The fact that the Law Enforcement Agencies have no power to intervene in land disputes, provides added comfort to land grabbers to inflict acts of violence and intimidation on their weaker opponents. By criminalising the activities of these group of people backed with strict sanctions, the Law evinces a clear intention to deal decisively with this evil.

The House of Assembly under the leadership of the Rt Hon Speaker, Prince Olakunle Taiwo Oluomo and the Ministry of Justice, under the leadership of the then Hon Attorney-General, Dr Olumide Ayeni SAN, must be commended for their bold initiative and collaborative efforts in ensuring the passage of the law. Although Lagos State was the first to pass a similar law, that of Ogun State has been generally acknowledged to be more far-reaching, and a few other states have actually copied the Ogun State version.

PROVISIONS OF THE LAW AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS
The provisions dealing with land grabbing are to be found in sections 3 to 14 of the Law. However, time will only permit me to speak elaborately on a few of them, while I will comment generally on the others.
Let me start with how the Law in Section 1, defines certain words and terms:

1. “Agent” means a person who acts or purports to act on behalf of any party to a real property transaction, whether in respect of a sale, lease, license, mortgage or other dealings or disposal of or relating to the property including any person engaged for the purpose of forceful take over or sale of a landed property.”

2. “Land Grabbers/Ajagungbales” means hoodlums, thugs, miscreants, touts, or any person who parade themselves as land owners without having title to the property.”

3. “Landed Property” or “Property” includes a parcel of land, farmland, whether actively in use or not, an improvement building, any ancillary to a building, the site comprising any building or buildings together with any land ancillary thereto and any other place.”

4. “Lawful Occupation” means control of a property as recognized by Law.”

5. “Offensive Weapon” includes any article inclusive of firearms within the meaning of this Law made or adopted for the use of attacking, causing aggravation or injury to a person or intended by the person having it or being in possession of it for such use by him including an air gun, air pistol, bow and arrow, spear, cutlass, knife, matchet, dagger, cudgel, or any piece or wood, metal glass or stone capable of being used as an offensive weapon to cause bodily injury or harm.”

6. “Trespasser” means any person who intrudes on the property of another without permission or any lawful reason or authority.”

7. “Violent” means a turbulent state resulting in injury or death or destruction to person or property.”

FORCEFUL TAKEOVER OF LAND
This is one of the evils that the law aims to eradicate.

Section 3 which deals with it, provides as follows:

(1) As from the commencement of this Law, no person or group of persons shall use force to take over any Landed Property in the State.

(2) Any person or group of persons who having used force to take over a Landed Property in the State from the commencement of this Law is guilty of an offence.

(3) Any person or group of persons that contravenes any of the provisions of Sub-sections (1) and (2) of this section shall on conviction be liable to a term of Twenty-One (21) years.

IMPLICATIONS
• Whether you are a land owner or the agent of a land owner, if you use force to take possession of any land from anyone, whether the person is rightfully or wrongfully on the land, you risk going to jail for 21 years, if charged and found guilty, under this law.
• It does not matter that you are the genuine owner of the land or that the person you are forcefully ejecting is a trespasser. This is the law of Ogun State

It's not a must to fence ..
But it's very necessary...
Fencing should be the first step before development... even if u don't fence it high, at least 3 coaches above ground level is okay...
even the one that was fenced and gated was encroached and built on. The same area.

Properties / My Land Was Encroached And Built On After 6years. . by akeensbussy(m): 8:42pm On Sep 17
Good day sir, I want to know if I will win this case on my land of if approach the court of law.

In 2016, I bought a land 22ft by 120ft from a family in Atan, Ogun State. When I wanted to do my foundation in the same year, the younger brother of the family head will not allow me to do it then. Claimed the money I paid was not enough for the land. I took them to citizen right at Abeokuta and when they saw letter from them, I was allowed to use my land. I did a foundation of 3 units of room and palour self and a unit of a roomself on the land and l left. Also on the land was a trailer heap of sand I bought. In 2019 a church bought a land beside me and they encroached my land by 4ft, I protested and it was settled btw us by the same Omonile that sold the land to me.

Fast forward to September 2022, when I got to the land, I discovered someone had built 2 rooms on my land..I saw a banner of a school hanging on the wall. I discovered it was the same school built on the land that is backing my land. I approached the owner of the school and she said she was the that built the 2 rooms. I asked her if she did not see foundation on the said land before she built on it....Her reply was that she has nothing to discuss with me because she doesn't know me.

I approached the Omonile that sold the land to me including the baba that took me to them, who also lived in the same area they all claimed they know nothing about it...it was later the head of the family later told me that It was the baba that took me to them with his younger brother that sold the land to the woman.

Immediately I took the matter to citizen right again. They were invited but they never showed up...the citizen right told me they can not force them to come, they can only invite them. I approached zone two police station, but the money they billed me at that time was much. I can't afford it.

I have all the pictorial evidence of when I was building the foundation including when they took me to the land the first time in 2016. My land was encroached and built on after 6years. ...what step can I take now...I have family receipt and Deed of Assignment with me... I will appreciate your respond

I need an advice concerning my land I bought in 2016 in Ogun State.

When I bought the land, family receipt was given to me and deed of agreement was signed with the family.

I did a foundation of 4 units of room and palour self on the land and I left it there.

Since then I have been going there to check anytime I am working on my house I wanted to live with my family. It was when I was building my house around that I bought the said land (22ft by 120ft).

When I moved into my house in Sept 2022, and I went to check the land, I found that some had erected a building on the land..on my foundation to be presize.

I reported the matter at station at the time, but the money the police where asking for couldn't not be raised cos my landlord sold the house I was living in Lagos then. All the money I had was used to finished part of my building so that my family can at least moving in.

What can I do now as I am ready to take possession of my land.

To train a Child is very easy and it is depends on the wife not to put financial pressure on their husband unnecessarily. I gave birth to 3 Children and non of them take all these Cow milk. All my Children were breast fed from the day of birth to 5months and by 6months, my wife introduce Amala with Ewedu, rice and other soft local food.

Sincerely, I did not buy a single CAN of baby food. All thank to my mother anyway. She came and taught my wife how not buy all these baby food. How to use our available local food to train baby. Instead I stock the house with a lot food for the mother. Though, she was not working at this time.

I really need the Government of Ogun State or lawyer's to come to my aid right now. I am writing this on nairaland because there no where in Ogun State to report land matters, that is why I choose nairaland, if I will find solution to my predicament.

I bought a land in Ogun State..(Kajola Iboro) Along Sango Idiroko Rd since 2013. I was given Family receipt and deed of Agreement.

Push to front page...I need help to go about this.

I sold a plot and a pieces (30ft by 60ft) from my land a year later. Remaing 5 acres.

Last week one of those I sold land to went to the site to work on his house, then he called to inform me that the 3 plots remaining from my land that is facing the second street had been cleared by unknown person that I should come around to see. When I got there, I saw it was true. Immediately, I ordered for 500 blks paid for sand and other necessary material and paid for workers to start taking possession of my land. They started immediately and they dug 6 shops on the land. They want to start laying blocks when the omonile came around and chase away.

The workers called to informed me that they had asked to leave my site and all their tools had been ceased and taken away.

When I got there the next day, they have started digging fenced and foundation on two plot of my land. Immediately I informed the Baale to be called ADELE, I also informed the person that sold land to me. The Adele said we should meet on the land the next day that he will sort the issue.

When we got there he asked them why they took over and sold my land, the man that was fronting the whole said the land belong to another family and they asked him to sell for them..he asked for the survey of the land from both family and called a surveyor to map out the land to see if it actually belong to the family they claimed. When the surveyor mapped out the land through the survey they provided, it was not near at all. When they discovered that they had lost it, they started using voilence words. That I will not use the land cos I am an outsider besides, the family that sold land to me were the one that brought Ajagungbale into their village and wanted to take over all their land. That if not that they fought and stood their ground, the Ajagungbale would have taken over their land. And they have resolved that all the land that belong to that family both sold and unsold will be ceased by the village. That I will not be allowed to used that land. But the Bale to be refute them and said though that is what they resolve truly but in this case, the land was stolen and sold by individual which is not what they agreed.

He said both party should stop working on the land till it is resolved but they will not listen. They said the other party should be working on my land and chase all my workers away....what will I do.
