Police Investigate Officer Over Land Grabbing Allegation

Lagos State Police Command is investigating one of its officers, identified as DSP Okon Effiong, over allegation of land grabbing.

It was gathered that Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatia Owoseni, ordered the Officer in Charge of the XSquad Unit Lagos State command, CSP Adenola Johnson, to investigate DSP Effiong, following a petition by a businesswoman, Mrs. Oyebola Bashiru, that DSP Effiong, in connivance with land grabbers at the Ikorodu area of the state, allegedly sold her land situated at Agbede town, Agric, Ikorodu.

Vanguard learned that in the petition, entitled Save my soul from DSP Okon and land grabbers,” Mrs Bashiru also alleged that her life was being threatened as the suspected land grabbers had sold a portion of her land to another person and were forcing her to relocate.

The petition read: “Sometime in 2009, I bought a piece of land at Agbede town, Agric, Ikorodu, from one DSP Munam Okon Effiong, a police officer attached to Owutu Police Station.

“I got to know Okon through an agent. Officer Okon sold a plot of land to me for N500, 000 and handed me the documents of the land. I later commenced to develop half plot of my land. I built a three-bedroom flat to lintel stage.

“To my shock, in July 2013, I saw that another structure had been erected on the other half. I called DSP Okon to inform him of the building on my land and he took me to one Wasiu Olo Omo, who claimed that the half plot does not belong to me.” (Vanguard)
