In a manner reminiscent of scenes in western movies, the headquarters of KosofeÂ Local Government in Ogudu, Lagos was besieged this morning by Lagos High CourtÂ bailiffs accompanied by a Lagos lawyer Barrister Olanrewaju Ajanaku.
Their mission was to enforce a court judgement to recover the debt of N1,806,350.
The judgement of the court was sequel to a suit filed by Mr. Olanrewaju Ajanaku onÂ behalf of a Lagos businessman, Adesina Odunlami and his company, AgbeworinÂ Construction Nigeria Limited.
It was alleged that the businessman constructed a drainage for the local councilÂ over 10 years ago but till date his money has not been paid.
All efforts by the plaintiff to be paid were thwarted by successive administrationsÂ until Justice Akeem Gbajabiamila gave judgement to recover the judgement.
At the time of the judgement was being executed, Kosofe Local Government chairman,Â Ademuyiwa Adedeji and the vice chairman, were not in the office.
The leader of legislative who was around, appealed to the bailiffs to stay action asÂ they will see to the execution of the judgement.
However, the bailiffs carted away an abulance with registration number BW 188 KSFÂ and a staff bus belonging to the council.
