The Olalore chieftaincy family of Igbo-llogbo, Ayobo in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State has alerted members of the public to beware of strange land agents claiming ownership on lgbo llogbo land in Ayobo town.
Alhaji Ambali Olorunfemi explained that the Olalore chieftaincy family which comprise Apete, Apasha, and Atuke families are the rightful owners of the parcel of land measuring approximately 6,000 hectares known as Igbo llogbo, Ayobo town.
He said the 6,000 hectares of land called Igbo-llogbo in Ayobo town was by inheritance from their great ancestor, Chief Olalore who first settled on the land and acquired it under native laws and customs.
Speaking further, Alhaji Ambali revealed that the Olalore family asked one Mr. Anthony to manage the land on behalf with the power of Attorney dated 16 June, 1965, with No 49 page 49, Vol. 832b and another one dated 21s September 1977, of which Alhaji Ambali Olorunfemi was pronounced as the newly appointed head of the Olalore family, Ayobo.
Besides, he revealed that the ownership of the vast land is adequately, and legally recognised by the government in a family survey plan No. 0GEK/ 252/ 75 dated 5th August, 1975.
To buttress the claims by the Olalore family as bonafide owner of the Igbo-Ilogbo land, Alhaji Ambali said the family had triumphed in court suites challenging the ownership of the land, saying that there are court judgments in favour of the family claims to the land and documents acknowledging the family’s ownership of the land.
The head of the Olalore family, therefore, cautioned members of the public to avoid all acts of impersonations on the said land, as the family has never and will not transfer its land ownership to anyone outside members of the family. (Independent)
