The Okunu Eleku family of Oko-Olomi has urged the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and other human rights community to conduct audit following alleged violation of the rights of the people of Oko-Olomi without warrant of possession and sheriffs of the court when the land speculator visited on April 16 and 17, 2016, using the instrumentality of the police.
In the said ruling that was used, Justice Olokoba had grant the order of possession sought by the claimant, Toll System Development Company Limited, “for a parcel of land measuring 1,561.20 hectare covered by a Certificate of Occupancy registered as no 17, page 17 in Vol. 2003T situate at Lakowe Village, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos State from any person who occupies same without the consent or permission of the claimant”.
