Court Stops Lagos States Govt From Taking Over ALABA Market

Office of Lagos Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, and Kosofe Local Government was on Tuesday, January 17, stopped by an Ikeja High Court from forcefully taking over the Alaba Section of Mile 12 Market.

Justice Latifat Oluyemi gave the interim injunction pending the determination of an application initiated by Incorporated Trustees of Orirere Community Leaders and Traders Association, Yeye Precious Modupe Ojo, Alhaji Akinwale Jimoh, and Babatunde Adetula.

Other respondents in suit number ID/6464GCMW/2022, include Ikosi/Isheri Local Council Development Area, Dr. Chris Onyekachi, Total Value Integrated Services Ltd, and Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development.

The lawsuit filed by the claimants for themselves and traders from the Alaba Section of Mile 12 Market, was brought under Order 42 Rules 1 and 4 and Order 43 of the High Court of Lagos State (Civil Procedure) Rules, 2019, and other provisions.

9News Nigeria reported that the claimant’s counsel, Mr. M.G. Quadri, alleged that he was refused entry and chased out by Princess Samiat Abolanle-Bada, the Chairman of the Ikosi-Isheri LCDA at a mediation meeting held on December 19, 2022, which he said, all parties attended.

The lawyer accused the respondents of continuing the demolition of the said section of the market on December 18, 2022, despite the service of court processes and prior agreement by the parties concerned.

Quadri said;

“On Dec. 19, the second meeting was held. All parties who attended the previous meeting also attended this one.

“The respondents orally promised the applicants to begin some sort of resolution process and stop further destruction of the market.

“Despite the promises given, destruction of properties and assault on helpless traders by heavily armed thugs have not stopped. It only increased exponentially.

“From the time the motion on notice was filed, up until now, more parts of the Alaba Section of the Mile 12 Market have been destroyed.

“Traders have been forced away from their shops, and thugs have been patrolling the area, assaulting anyone that comes close,” the counsel had submitted.”

Before adjourning the case till January 19, Justice Oluyemi restrained the respondents, their agents, servants, privies, and any other person from demolishing or forcefully taking over the section pending determination of the motion on notice.
