A Civil Engineer based in New Jersey, United States of America, Mr Olufemi Fasehun, is calling on the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to investigate the criminal activities of Tajudeen Egunaye, Ayinde Sanni Egunaye, Mrs Mudirat Egunaye, Aare Tomori Williams, and other unidentified persons.
The alleged criminal activities include stealing, breaking into a building and committing a felony, malicious vandalization of property, stealing with violence, a threat to life, harassment, intimidation, and conduct likely to cause breach of peace, forcible entry, unlawful interference, and criminal trespasses on Mr Fasehun’s property located at 10, Kudirat Abiola Way, Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos State.
In a letter dated September 1, 2023, addressed to the IGP, Mr Fasehun’s lawyer explains that his client’s father purchased the land in 1961 and built a house on it. Before he died in 2004, he gave a power of attorney to Mr. Fasehun, his only male child, to administer his estate in 2003. A family case arose from the management of the estate, and the Lagos State High Court affirmed Mr Fasehun as the owner of the property.
Mr. Fasehun’s workers were arrested on the property on April 28, 2023, by a team of police operatives led by Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP, Danko Shamakin. They were later released on bail. Following this incident, the accused attacked Mr Fasehun’s property four times, leading him to lodge a petition dated May 2, 2023.

The accused persons filed a petition dated March 9, before the one initiated by Mr. Fasehun, where they made an unfounded accusation against him. Despite their claims of ownership, Mr Fasehun wants the police to investigate the matter and prosecute whoever is found guilty.
Mr. Fasehun’s case is based on sound evidence, including the deed of indenture (title document) registered at the Ministry of Land of Western Nigeria in 1961 and the sale witnessed by the first defendant in the 1952 case of the Egunaye. A survey was also lodged concerning the land and registered alongside the title document on the same date in 1961.
Therefore, we urge the IGP to take over the petitions at the General Investigation Department and X-Squad Department at FCID Alagbon, Lagos, and ensure an unbiased investigation is carried out on this matter. We believe that justice must be served, and the perpetrators of these criminal acts must be brought to book to help secure Mr. Fasehun’s property and prevent future occurrences.
