Efforts by the Lagos State Government to curb the activities of land grabbers aka ‘Omo Onile’ received a massive boost on Thursday as the Special Task Force on Land Grabbing arrested a notorious land grabbing kingpin terrorising Ikorodu area of Lagos. .
The kingpin, one Kamorudeen Lamina alias ‘Sir K Oluwo,’ is said to have been terrorising the people of the State, especially residents of Ikorodu. He was arrested on Thursday by officials who had been on his trail for a very long time. .
Lamina was said to have fallen into the waiting hands of the Taskforce when he was tricked out of his hiding in a well-orchestrated operation carried out in Alausa area of the State. .
Chairman, Lagos State Special Taskforce on Land Grabbing, Mr. Jide Bakare said his office had received lots of petitions from innocent residents who have been deprived of their legitimate investment in landed property by the unscrupulous gang of Lamina who had been a torn in the flesh of his victims. .
Bakare, in a statement, said that the arrest of Sir K. Oluwo by his team was a clear indication of the commitment of the Ambode-led administration to ensure that the lives and property of residents across the State was secured and protected under the law. .
According to him, the state government would immediately begin the prosecution of the arrested Omo Onile Kingpin to serve as a deterrent to others that no one is above the law in Lagos State.
