A Federal Capital Territory High Court presided by Justice O.C. Agbaza has ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu to provide protection and security to allottees of an estate in Lugbe, pending the hearing and determination of a suit before the court.
The court also restrained the defendants from “further trespass, encroachment, demolishing and disturbing the peaceful and quiet enjoyment of the plaintiffs of land, properties and interests described in various title documents but not limited to the attached document described at Lugbe Extension 1, Abuja pending the determination of Motion on Notice.”
Mrs Shuaibu B.A., Collins Chukwuma Anomneze, Hannah Omuya, Rosemary Omuya, Saliu Aliyu, Desmond Maduka Ihejirika and Rita Nduka, filed the suit on behalf of allotted/owners of plots of land and house in Lugbe Extension 1 Layout.
Defendants in the suit are Paul Odili, Paulo Homes Ltd, River Park Estate and the Inspector General of Police.
Meanwhile, the judge further ordered service of court papers on the defendants.
The orders followed an ex parte application brought by Victor Giwa Esq., counsel to the plaintiffs.
The case has been fixed for September 17 for hearing.
Reacting to the order, counsel to the estate, Bunmi Biyi Esq, said he has not been served with the court processes, adding that he is not aware of any plans to demolish the estate.
“You can’t go to court based on speculation,” he said.
