The Lagos State House of Assembly on Tuesday condemned Monday’s killing of the Managing Director of the Lekki Free Trade Zone, Mr Tajudeen Disu, by unknown persons and described the act as “heinous,terrible and saddening.”
The Street Journal recalls that the late Disu was killed in Lekki area of Lagos, while on a mission to mediate in a dispute over the ownership of a land there.
The Legislators, in a resolution, directed the Clerk of the House, Mr Ganiyu Abiru, to send a condolence letter to the family of the deceased, to commiserate with them and also write a letter to Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode “to do what was needful to stem the menace of land grabbers in the state.”
The Speaker of the House, Mr Mudashiru Obasa,in his contribution at the plenary session, said the culprits should be brought to book to serve as deterrent to other land grabbers.
Also, speaking on the killing, Mr Rotimi Olowo (APC-Somolu 1), described the act as “heinous,terrible and saddening,’’ and urged the police to fish out the hoodlums and bring them to book.
In his contribution, Mr Lanre Ogunyemi (APC-Ojo 2), urged the assembly to look into the proliferation of illegal arms in the state, observing that land grabbers have been harassing people over land, and urged his colleagues to “leave no stone unturned to nip their activities in the bud.”
Mr Abiodun Tobun (APC-Epe 1), while contributing at the plenary,said the legislators would deploy the whole power of the state to get the hoodlums and bring them to book and condemned the killing which,he said, took place when the deceased was merely doing his job when he was called to make peace between disputing parties over land.
