Human rights activists, under the platform of the Centre for Human and Socio-Economic Rights, have urged Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and security agents to prioritise halting the menace of land grabbing across Lagos State.
The activists, who highlighted the threats to public peace by land grabbers in Ojomu communities Ajiranland in Eti Osa, called for government’s intervention to stop incessant harassment, criminal trespass and violent activities by land grabbers.
Speaking at a news conference yesterday in Lagos, the President of CHSR, Mr Alex Omotehinse, said the security and welfare of the people should be more paramount to Sanwo-Olu.
Omotehinse said, “We are deeply concerned by the continuous threats to public peace as a result of the unlawful activities of land grabbers in Ojomu community otherwise referred to AJIRAN LAND, in the Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State.
Activities of land grabbers should be curtailed. The governor of Lagos State must rise up to the occasion to secure the people of the state and their property; that is the primary responsibility of a government.
