Magodo protest: Sanwo-Olu, police team leader exchange words, gov plans meeting

-

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday, led members of his cabinet to visit residents protesting against the continuous presence of armed policemen in the Magodo Phase 2 Estate area of the state.

The policemen recently accompanied suspected land grabbers and members of a family who planned to demolish property on the estate to execute a Supreme Court judgment.

During the invasion, the hoodlums used red, brown and blue inks to inscribe ‘ID/795/88 Possession Taken Today 21/12/21 by Court Order,’ on property on the estate.

The group was about to invade the estate with a bulldozer when the estate management ordered a closure of the gate.

It took the intervention of Sanwo-Olu before the gates were reopened, as the Inspector-General of Police, Baba Usman, reportedly promised to withdraw the policemen.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the estate gates were again shut around 6am on Tuesday to protest the continuous presence of the policemen.

Speaking with our correspondent at the protest ground, the Chairman of the estate, Bajo Osinubi, said the policemen had remained on the estate despite the governor’s intervention.
