Lagos lawyer warns Nigerian Police

A Lagos-based lawyer, Kayode Fasetire has urged the Insepector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to call to order some of his officers who are allegedly frustrating a court order.

According to Kayode who is counsel to Redorn Realtors Ltd., his client obtained a court order for the possession of a property located at 31A&B Gafar Animashaun Street, Victoria Island, Lagos but since it took possession, some mobile policemen had been trying to illegally reinstate the former owner into the property.

Kayode said that his client bought the said property from Sterling Bank Plc in 2015 but that all the firm’s effort to gain entry into the property had been continuously frustrated by mobile police officers on the orders of someone in the high hierarchy of the police force.

Shedding light on the ownership of the building, Kayode said the former owner of the property, Tonique Oil Services Ltd., lost it ownership after failing to pay back a N2bn loan facility it secured from Sterling Bank Plc.
