The Magistrate Court in Oyingbo Ebute-Metta, Lagos, has taken decisive action following allegations of land grabbing involving one Alhaji Sulaimon of Okun-Ajah, Eti-Osa, Lagos State, and others.

Lateef Lawal, the husband of the Nollywood actress Lizzy Anjorin, is also embroiled in the dispute.

Court files listed Lawal among individuals sued for demolishing structures on a property owned by one Faith Ojo.

Lawal purportedly escaped arrest in Ikoyi, Lagos State, on February 5, 2024, while his associate was apprehended and sent to prison.

Ojo, in the lawsuit, is identified as a Nigerian businesswoman based in the United States.

The land with plan no “AGA/2582/037J/2020/LA”, the claimant revealed, is located in Okun-Ajah, Eti-Osa Lagos.

Among the defendants are Rasheed Olukosi, Muniru Olukosi, Saheed Olukosi, Kareem Wasiu Jagun, Sulaimon Bolaji, Muritala Musbau, and Kehinde Jagun.

They were accused alongside Lateef of demolishing some structures on the land in what Ojo has described as “land grabbing” in her suit.

Ojo sought N30 million as compensation and asked that the defendants cover both the cost of litigation and petitioning the police.

She sought a “perpetual injunction” against the defendants “from entering, developing, and occupying” the two-plot land.

The case against Lawal is becoming public knowledge just days after it was alleged that Lizzy Anjorin, his actress wife, made a fake mobile banking transfer in a Lagos store.

The transaction, it was reported, happened after she purchased goods worth N91,000 from a store inside a Lagos market.

The actress, however, has denied the allegations and argued that the video was a “setup” targeted against her person.
