The Lagos State Ministry of Transportation has denied accusations from a lawyer, Mr. M.O. Ubani, accusing it of dragging a parcel of land situated at 1, Folurunsho Kuku Street, Off Agbaoku, Opebi.
The lawyer claimed that a task force of the ministry had forcibly taken over the private parcel of land on the 31st of December, 2020 through the help of thugs, who beat and arrested everyone on the land.
The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement on Saturday titled ‘Lagos State Ministry of Transportation not involved in land matters’ described the allegation as a flagrant attempt to rubbish the reputable integrity of the Ministry.
Part of the statement read, “This allegation is false in its totality as the ministry’s statutory duty has nothing to do with land matters but efficient traffic management and transportation in the state.”
The ministry advised Ubani to search further for the perpetrators of the said land grabbing.Follow us on social media
