The General Overseer of Lord’s Chosen Church, Pastor Lazarus Muoka, has dragged the Inspector-General of Police before a Lagos High Court in Igbosere over a land tussle.

Other respondents in the suit are: Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Deputy Commissioner of Police, State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Yaba; Inspector Festus Elelegwu and Mrs Oluwatosin Ogundipe (2nd-5th respondent).

According to the suit marked M/541/2013, the Incorporated Trustee of the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministry and its pastor (Applicants) were threatened to be arrested by the police following a petition written by Oluwatosin alleging that the church bought her land in Ikotun area of Lagos.

The applicants, in their written address, contend that they bought the land from Oluwatosin’s husband, adding that he died some years later after he validly sold the land and gave possession and titled document to them.

In the suit, the applicants maintained that when Oluwatosin’s husband died, problem started in the deceased’s polygamous home as members of his family tried to outwit each other in the scramble for his property. [Vanguard]
