Ashamu Estate Residents Condemn Plot To Kill Estate Agent


Over 300 residents of Ashamu Estate, Oke Afa, Isolo, Lagos State, have condemned the  alleged plot by some hoodlums to attack a Lagos-based estate agent/consultant, Chief  Teslim Adeola Almaroof, over a landed property belonging to the late industrialist,  Chief E. O Ashamu.

The residents made the declaration at a meeting held recently with Chief Almaroof at  Lillian Margaret Health Farm, located at Isheri Osun.

Commending the estate agent for his contributions to the community and the less  privileged, the residents wondered why some people should plan to attack someone who  has been of great importance to his community.

Some groups of people are currently being investigated by the police authorities in  Abuja over the incidence. They were alleged to have stormed the Ashamu estate  looking for Almaroof in a bid to attack him for not supporting them to re sell the  land which their forefathers had sold to the industrialist.

Meanwhile, Chief Almaroof had dismissed the claim of members of Ishoru family in  Isolo, that there was a court injunction restraining him from taking over the vast  land belonging to the late industrialist at Oke Afa, Lagos State.

Describing the claim as ‘misleading, mischievous and frivolous’, Chief Almaroof  argued that there was no time he trespassed on the land. He said his presence on the  land was sequel to his appointment as credited attorney by the administrators of the  estate with the approval of the estate’s counsel, Chief Afe Babalola, SAN.

To further prove his point, he stated that the court of Appeal, sitting in lagos had  in suit CA/L/339/04, on 23rd November, 2007, dismissed a suit filed against him and  six others over the land by the Ishoru family.

Justice Monica Bolna and Dongban Mensem, had according to the judgment, held thus:  “the learned trial judge having found and held that the suit of the appellant as  plaintiff constitutes an abuse of process, the appropriate order to make was that of  dismissal.

Besides various little deeds obtained by the Late Chief Ashamu, the Supreme Court  had also declared hima s the sole owner of the landed property.
