Residents of Ikorodu community can breathe fresh air following the capture of Alhaji Kamorudeen Lamina aka Sir K Oluwo popular for his notoriety in land grabbing in the area.
Land owners, families as well as business owners operative in Ikorodu, Odogunyan, Imota, Agura and other areas of Lagos can attest to the actions of the land grabbing kingpin who has terrorized Ikorodu axis in recent years.
Sir K Oluwo as he is fondly referred among his loyalists was apprehended by the Special Task Force on Land Grabbing set by the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode today, Thursday, June 15, 2017. The arrest of the ‘Omo Onile’ strongman is coming on the heels of the recent moves by the Lagos State Government to curb the activities of land grabbers in the State.
The suspect was arrested by the Task Force team who had been on his trail for a very long time. He was reportedly tricked out of his hiding in a well-orchestrated operation carried out in the Alausa, Lagos.
Speaking on the development, Chairman of the Lagos State Special Taskforce on Land Grabbing, Mr. Jide Bakare, said his office had received tons of petitions written by innocent residents who have been deprived of their legitimate investment in landed property by the unscrupulous gang of Lamina who had been a thorn 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.
He further assured residents that information given by them against the nefarious activities of land grabbers will be treated with utmost confidence.
Meanwhile, Bakare disclosed that the State Government would immediately begin the prosecution of Sir K Oluwo to serve as a deterrent to others that no one is above the law in Lagos State.
While warning those in the act to steer clear of Lagos, Bakare also said that the Task Force would intensify efforts to make the State unbearable for their nefarious activities.
