Duped Tenants Protest At Alausa

About 200 prospective tenants, whose money were taken and denied accommodation by fleeing estate developers, have appealed to the Lagos state government to come to their aid.

About 200 prospective tenants, whose money were taken and denied accommodation by fleeing estate developers, have appealed to the Lagos state government to come to their aid.

The tenants, who staged a peaceful protest at the Alausa secretariat, urged the government to help them retrieve their money from the fraudulent developers who collected more than N74 million from them for a property at 15, Shokunbi Street, Mushin, Lagos.

The protesters also stormed the Citizens’ Mediation Centre (CMC) to seek its intervention in their predicament. Some of the tenants, who spoke with P.M.News, explained that they were at the centre to solicit government’s assistance in recovering their money.

They appealed to the government to assist them in fishing out the developers whose names were given as Bayo Lawal, Bayo Wale and Alhaji Isiaka Salami Oladigbolu.

P.M.News gathered that the prospective tenants had earlier petitioned the Lagos State Commissioner of Police and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ikoyi, on their plight. They were asked to come back in two weeks’ time for further development. The prospective tenants became angry when the landlord of the controversial building, Mr. Odude, appeared at CMC. They attempted to mob him but were calmed down by officials of the centre who promised to look into their grievances.

P.M.News investigations revealed that the runaway estate developers collected more than N74 million from about 200 prospective tenants over the property at Mushin. Most of the tenants were said to have paid between N260,000 to N550,000 to the developers for flats in the building already completed.
