It is claimed that the Omo-Oniles whose fathers are the original owners of the lands in that areas had sent a message to landlords of houses in the area which the demolition might affect that they want to take back the lands or be ready to renegotiate and pay all over again for the land already paid for before.
According to the report reaching us from the scene of events, there’s been a total lockdown in the area while protests are ongoing, with no vehicle or persons allowed in or out of the Estates in the area.
