Kemi Olunloyo Warns Residents,Magodo Estate Will Turn To War Zone And Be Demolished

The ongoing battle over the ownership of Magodo Phase 2 Estate, Lagos, will eventually lead to the demolition of houses, controversial journalist Kemi Olunloyo warns.

Olunloyo issued the warning after a police officer who was deployed to the highbrow estate openly defied Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday and refused to withdraw his men from the residential area.

Residents had complained that the police refused to leave the area after accompanying bulldozers and thugs to the estate in a failed demolition attempt weeks ago.

“I hope you all asked your parents what happened in Magodo happened under President (Muhammadu) Buhari when he was a general,” Olunloyo said in a Facebook post this morning.

What happened here in law enforcement terms in US/Canada is called ‘theft by conversion’ which is what the military did in 1984. The 1978 land use act comes in.
