The petition was jointly signed by members of the association’s executive and addressed to the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Shina Olukolu.

The association alleged that Taiwo, a tenant in the community has been parking unregistered imported cars on the major road of the community which had increased incidence of vandalization and robbery in the community.

“We want to state here clearly that ever since he has been parking his fleet of unregistered imported cars on our main road, the incidence of vandalization of cars by bandits have increased.

“The mass movement of these unregistered imported cars into the community for parking in the evening has attracted hoodlums and robbers to the community.

“There is hardly a month that we don’t receive cases of theft. It is either batteries or motor parts are stolen at nights,” the petition reads.

It expressed worry that despite communal efforts made to ensure peace, tranquility, security and good neighborliness, Taiwo had been deviance to every good efforts made.

The association alleged Taiwo of being unruly, arrogant, uncouth and egocentric in his utterances, adding he flaunted affluence and relationships with top ranking security officials in the country.

It said that further investigation by the association revealed that Taiwo never paid the monthly agreed security fee nor attended any of the association’s meeting to know the challenges of the association.

“We have discussed with his landlord and have mutually agreed that Taiwo has not been able to give the community deserved cooperation and comply with the rules and regulations of the association.

“We are of considered opinion that he cannot live peacefully with others in our community and should therefore vacate our community as soon as possible,” the association said.

But, Taiwo told newsmen that all the allegations levelled against him by the association were untrue, saying he was a peace loving tenant.

He said that the petition was truly forwarded to the police and the police already intervening in the matter.

“My car was vandalised in the community and I am in court over that issue. So, I won’t comment on it. It is true that a petition was written to the police and they are already intervening,” he said.

The petition was also copied to the Director, Department of State Services, Divisional Police Officers, Orita-Challenge and their lawyers.
