Edo Taskforce Arrests Land Grabber

For alleged violation of the law prohibiting forceful entry and illegal occupation of landed property in Edo State, the Private Property Protection Taskforce set up by the Governor Obaseki-led administration has apprehended and handed over one Mr. Osarobo Idahosa to security agency.

Vice Chairman of the taskforce, Chief Osaro Idah, disclosed this while briefing journalists in Benin City, Edo State on the activities of the panel of inquiry set up by the taskforce.

Chief Idah said the panel sought to know the true owner of a parcel of land located at Evbhoriaria, being contested by Mr. Christopher Akeh and Mr. Osarobo Idahosa.

He said during the investigation carried out by the panel, Mr Idahosa failed to provide the necessary documents to back his claim of ownership of the parcel of land.

Besides, he said that Idahosa also inflicted physical injuries on Akeh, who was discovered to have legally acquired the land from the Edo State Government.

“The committee faulted Mr. Idahosa for contravening the property law and has handed him over to security agencies for disciplinary actions to serve as a deterrent to others,” he said.
