Aggrieved residents of the Olokonla community in the Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State on Thursday, pleaded to the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to interfere in the demolition of their houses.
The protesters made the appeal when they stormed Tinubu’s residence in Ikoyi, Lagos, on Thursday.
They alleged that some men who claimed to be the officials of the Lagos State government allegedly demolished their buildings worth over N15billion.
The protesters, led by Barrister Mr. Dotun Hassan, said their houses were demolished without a court order.
“We appeal to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a kind politician, to intervene and stop this demolition.
“We are not illegal occupiers. We have our genuine land documents,” he said.
Tunde Rahman, Media Assistant to Tinubu, urged the protesters to maintain the peace.
He promised to convey their petition to Tinubu and advised their leader to come to the Freedom House next Tuesday.
