A school proprietress, Princess Bola Jegede, whose bullet proof car got missing in the custody of the Lagos State Judiciary has asked the Chief Judge, Justice Kazeem Alogba, to reveal findings of the Inquiry Disciplinary Committee panel set up over the issue.
This is contained in a letter written by his lawyer, Yemi Modele, to the office of the Chief Judge after over ten months of waiting for response to her petition.
The letter tagged; “Outcome of Disciplinary Committee Meeting of the Lagos State Judicial Service Commission Held on 20/12/2021 not Known” the proprietress said she is yet to get justice or get feedback from the panel of the inquiry.
“Letters had been on behalf of our client to your office in respect of Suit No. MIK/1219/2011 (Mr. Lati Gomes & 20rs vs. Princess Bola Jegede) that a Nissan Maxima (3.5SE) car with registration number BQ775AGL attached to the court after execution could not be found which said development prompted the commission to set up a disciplinary committee which met on 20/12/2021.
“We were invited to the meeting vide a letter dated 15/12/2021 and our client’s was present. Copy of the invitation letter is hereby attached for your references.
“My Lord, for over eight months the committee had met, our client is yet to hear any response from the commission concerning the missing car hence this letter.
“Our client hereby requests the position of the commission about her missing car without further delay.” the letter reads.
The Chief Judge of Lagos State, Justice Kazeem Alogba, had set up a disciplinary committee to unravel the misery surrounding how the Nissan Maxima (3.5SE) with registration No BQ 775 AGL retrieved from the judgment debtor in the suit no. MIK/22/19/11, between Lati Gomes and Princess Bola Jegede got missing.
The committee was set up following a petition written by Princess Bola Jegede, a Proprietress of A-Z International College.
The then Head of Deputy Sheriff Section, Lagos, Mrs Julie Abieyuwa Anabor, who is now a judge at the Code of Conduct Tribunal had on March 28, 2013, executed the judgment against the judgement debtor pursuant to judgment delivered on June 28, 2012.

Executing the judgement, Justice Anabor impound two Toyota Hummer school buses and a bullet proof Nissan Maxima.
The Proprietress in a series of letters written to the present Chief judge, stated that the parties had since settled their differences as the judgment creditor and debtor have compromised their position.
Judgment debtors had then asked the Deputy Registrar to release the properties as stated in the attached copy of inventory and release the same to the rightful owner in compliance with the order of the court.
The Chief Magistrate F. A. Azeez had in a suit deliver judgement over rent of property between the trustees of the estate of honourable Justice T.S Gomes and Princess Bola Jegede wherein court ordered defendant to pay the sum of N9 million as arrears of rent from January 2005 to 2008 and January 2009 to 2010.
Consequently, the debt the defendant couldn’t pay thereafter led to the execution of the Judgment, before both parties were able to settle the rift.
However, Justice Anabor, released the two school buses with registration no UF 129 KJA and UF 128 KJA but refused to release the Nissan Maxima (3.5SE) with registration no BQ775 AGL.
The School Proprietress has through his lawyer, Mr Omodele, in a letter dated October 14, 2020 to the Deputy Sheriff to release the remaining one vehicle, Nissan Maxima car in the interest of justice as the last hope of a common man.
However, investigation revealed that Justice Julie Anabor the Head of Deputy Sheriff (as at then) authorized the release of the bulletproof vehicle from the Strabag warehouse, Ikeja.
