A Lagos-based businessman, Prince Dele Ajiboye, who claimed his life is being threatened, has renewed the petition he wrote to the Commissioner of Police Lagos State and the Inspector-General of Police Abuja, the capital of Nigeria.
In a petition written to both the Lagos State police boss and the Inspector-General of Police by a Lagos lawyer, Barrister Adefioye Gbadebo, on behalf of Prince Dele Ajiboye, it was alleged that the duo of Chidi Chukwuneyen and Ojukwu Chukwuneyen of Cool Penny Hotel Limited, Ijegun Imoren, Satellite Town, Lagos, Nigeria, have been threatening his life as they invaded his landed property on 4 July, 2009 and 5 March, 2010 with thugs and OPC men, armed with dangerous weapons and with intention of killing him.
During the invasion, two of the suspected thugs were apprehended while properties worth millions of naira were either destroyed or carted away.
Those arrested had made statements to the police and the matter was later reported at Force Criminal Investigation Department, Alagbon, Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria, where they made the same confessional statements they earlier made at Agboju Police Station.
They would soon be charged to court.
In an earlier letter written to the Chukwuneyens by Prince Ajiboyeâ€™s lawyer, it was stated that the entire land comprising 13 acres belongs to the petitioner by virtue of his outright purchase from the Alagbo Agbojo family and has been in possession of it until 1994, when some people trespassed on it but were restrained by a court’s order.
The petitioner also drew the attention of the Chukwuneyens to a suit, ID/251/2001, in which they were restrained from further trespass on the land.
It was also alleged that the trespassers are being aided by a retired Deputy Superintendent of Police to harass the petitioner and in view of this, Prince Ajiboye urged the Inspector-General of Police to use his good offices to investigate the matter before any harm is done to him.
