Homeowners at the Alma Beach Estate, Lekki, Lagos, have asked the state governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu to investigate the violence and destruction of properties being perpetrated by land grabbers aided by thugs and policemen in the community.

The homeowners in a statement on Sunday challenged a claim that the homeowners lawyer, Dr Muiz Banire, SAN, was trying to obstruct the course of justice in regard to some developments in the estate.

 “Dr Banire is a lawyer to some of our members. He joined the team of lawyers engaged by estate owners just last year, September precisely. How he would have influenced events prior to that date for which he was not aware of the existence remains a mystery.

 “The purpose of the vituperation is to derail Dr Banire from his professional handling of the matter. We know that the lawyer can handle the situation professionally but we feel compelled to react to the lies being peddled everywhere there,” the statement read in part.
