Assets Filling Station Hires Akintola, Drags Makinde To Court Over Demolition


The management of Assets filling station, Ojoo, Ibadan, has dragged Oyo State Government to the high court of the state over the demolition of its property.

According to the legal counsel led by Chief Niyi Akintola, the case, which was instituted before Justice Segun Olagunju, was to determine the rationale behind the demolition of the property when its owner obtained Certificate of occupancy from both federal and state governments.

Akintola, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, argued that the plaintiff had filed a suit to stop the demolition since December 2019 and wondered why the state government would begin the demolition without the outcome of court judgment.

He also cited many reference cases to such effect noting that his client obtained certificate from the federal and state high court.

However, in his argument, the counsel to the state government and Governor Seyi Makinde, Barrister I.O. Tijani, argued that the property was acquired illegally and also contravened the planning and environmental law of the state.

He also revealed that the C of O document, being paraded by the plaintiff, was fraudulently obtained.

Citing a similar case between Lagos state and a resident in the state, Tijani said the court had ruled that it is only the state government who has the right for planning environmental law and not the federal government.
