Residents of Magodo Phase 2 this morning January 4, staged a protest over the continual presence of armed policemen within the property following an invasion final month and the deliberate demolition of properties.



Recall that in December 2021, a bunch of armed law enforcement officials stormed the property after a household in Lagos state mentioned they’d a courtroom injunction to reclaim the land wherein a few of the homes have been constructed. The Lagos state authorities described the invasion as unwarranted and vowed to prosecute all these concerned. However, for the reason that invasion in December, the law enforcement officials haven’t been drafted out of the property.



The protesting residents say it’s unacceptable for the armed law enforcement officials to proceed to put siege of their surroundings.

“We referred to as our folks out to protest this morning over 50 policemen residing throughout the property. We need the police out of our property. There aren’t any circumstances of kidnapping, rioting, however why are they nonetheless right here? We need them out of our property.

We wish to stay in peace. This is a enterprise between the Lagos State authorities and the Adeyiga household. We are below siege; the police have been right here for 2 weeks, they got here in December to take possession of properties on behalf of Adeyiga household and others.

Since then, we’ve gotten in contact with outstanding personalities to intervene and get the police off our property. We are victims, even inside our personal properties. The police have been right here. They are very stressed.

Just think about there may be an altercation between a resident and the police. The best technique to keep away from any such state of affairs is to detach the law enforcement officials again to Abuja.

We’ve allowed folks to exit, however we’re protesting this morning to let the world know what’s going. We are purported to be at work, however we would like the entire world to know what’s taking place at Magodo.

The governor spoke with me yesterday (Monday), and he mentioned he’s on high of it. He has promised to handle the state of affairs.

The Commissioner of Police final week despatched the DCP Ops to oversee the withdrawal of troops however they claimed they’re but to get sign. We discovered the police have been drafted from Abuja.

Our instant concern is to get the police out of the property for us to depart in peace. We want the federal government to do the needful to get the household off our neck. About 4 to 5 years in the past, they did it, and now once more this yr, they wish to do it.”

They referred to as on the Lagos State authorities to intervene into the matter.
