There seems to be more trouble for embattled Ogun senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu has a family in Ogun State, the Bakare family have accused him of illegally purchasing 300 acres of land that belongs to them. The family led by Shafiudeen Bakare, stormed Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Iwe Irohin, Press Centre, Oke Ilewo, Abeokuta and explained that the family had all documents and will drag Kashamu to court over the issue.
“We are here to speak to the world on the fraudulent purchase of our land at Ajah by Buruji Kashamu under the business name of Bukas Kasmal International Ltd. We have been deprived of this land, and we have come to raise alarm.
When some of those who purchased the land took him to court, the court ruled that we, the original owners should be in court and not a third party. So, we have been making arrangements to revisit the case by heading for the courts to get justice. Some of those whose section of the land was encroached took the matter up, but, unfortunately at the court, it was ruled that the plaintiffs could not take the defendant to court, hence, three years after, we are set to revisit the matter,” Bakare said.
He also vowed that they will not relent until they take back their possession from the senator-elect.
