Company sounds alarm over disobeying court order
The CEO of Adamakin Works and Investment Ltd, Akinfolabi Akindele, has drawn the attention of the Lagos State Judiciary to what he said was a disobedience to the court order by another claimant regarding the construction of the Alade retail market on Allen Avenue, Lagos.
Judge YG Oshoala of the Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja had issued a court order on March 2, 2022, asking all parties in a bounded lawsuit ID/11099LMW/2021, to halt construction in the market of Alade retail at Allen Avenue pending the decision of the controversial issues surrounding the property.
Akindele however drew the attention of the tribunal to the fact that the Plaintiff/Applicant, Masters Reality Intl Concepts Ltd. flouts this order and if not called to order and punished for contempt of court, the situation would lead to the breakdown of law and order.
Masters Reality Intl Concepts Ltd. filed the lawsuit and obtained the restraining order against the Inspector General of Police, Sector Commander, FIB Special Tactical Squad, Ikeja, and Police Commissioner in charge of the Special Fraud Unit, Ikoyi
Others subject to the order are Asp Tominiyi Adedayo of Property Fraud Section, Special Fraud Unit, Adamakin Investments & Works Limited, Mr Akinfolabi Akindele and Lagoon Park Global Resources.
According to Akindele, the impunity and recklessness displayed by Masters Reality Intl Concepts Ltd. are such that the common man loses hope in the justice system.
“How can the same person who took legal action seeking redress still mobilize the police on the site to disobey the order he obtained against us, an order which all the defendants adhered to in respect of Right wing state.
“In the interest of justice, the judiciary should deploy the sheriff of the court to take over the disputed land (Alade Retail Market), Akindele said, urging the state’s chief justice to salvage the image of the judiciary and to restore the hope and confidence that Nigerians have for judicial redress by sanctioning Masters Reality Intl Concepts Ltd.
Masters Reality Intl Concepts Ltd. had recently alleged that the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice of Lagos State, Moyosore Onigbanjo, was collaborating with the police to use false documents to bring criminal charges against its landlord.
The allegation, which was denied by the Department of Justice, was described as baseless, false and a calculated attempt to manipulate and avoid prosecution.
The attorney general said the lie was concocted to prevent prosecution in an alleged forcible land takeover case brought against him by the state.
