HARD time awaits those called Omo-onile and Ajagungbale,  as the Lagos State House of  Assembly has proposed three-year jail term for any person or group of persons, who engage in forcible entry and occupation of landed property in the state.

This was one of the provisions of the State Properties Protection Bill  2013, which scaled through the second reading at the floor of the assembly on Thursday.

The bill seeks to regulate the use of forceful or unreasonable force to take over any landed property in the state by criminalising such act.

Chairman, Committee on Lands and Housing, Honourable Bayo Osinowo, who spoke on the advantages of the bill, said it would address so many atrocities committed by land grabbers in the state, if it was eventually passed into law.

Osinowo noted sadly that 60 per cent of Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) were fake, saying the bill would correct such anomalies when passed.[Nigerian Tribune]
