In response to allegations of land grabbing involving Alhaji Sulaimon of Okun-Ajah, Eti-Osa, Lagos State, and others, the Magistrate Court in Oyingbo Ebute-Metta, Lagos, has taken proactive measures.
Alhaji Sulaimon stands accused of maliciously damaging properties valued at N15,000,000.00 (fifteen million naira), reportedly intended for an orphanage home and disabled children, owned by Mrs Faith Ojo, an American-based Nigerian businesswoman.
Despite the efforts of the Zone 2 Police to address the alleged criminal activities, the defendant and his co-conspirators managed to evade capture, while further police investigations are still ongoing.
One of the alleged co-conspirators, Lateef Lawal, husband of actress Lizzy Anjorin, purportedly escaped arrest in Ikoyi, Lagos State, on February 5, 2024, while his associate was apprehended and sent to prison.
It was gathered that the case has already entered the Lagos High Court for civil redress in two separate suits with case numbers: SUIT NO: LD/14340LMW/2023 BETWEEN ALHAJI BOLAJI SULAIMON & 3 ORS VS MRS. FAITH OJO AND SUIT NO: LD/14515LMW/2023 BETWEEN MRS. FAITH OJO VS CHIEF RASHEED OLUKOSI & 7 ORS.
Despite ongoing legal proceedings, the defendants in the Magistrate Court, along with others allegedly associated with Lizzy Anjorin’s husband, purportedly continue to engage in land-grabbing activities across Lagos State.
While bail conditions for the suspect accused of malicious damages are yet to be met, his co-conspirator remains in custody at the Ikoyi Custodial Centre.
There are further allegations that actress Liz Anjorin has been discreetly leveraging her celebrity status to secure the release of the suspect from prison.
