Ogun To Amend Anti Land Grabbing Law

Ogun State Government is finalizing arrangements to amend the law banning and illegal invasion of land in the state.

The proposed amendment of the existing land grabbing law, aims at making it more effective.

The Chief Of Staff to the State Governor, Salisu Shuaib, made this known while addressing protesters from 17 villages in Sagamu and Odogbolu, whose land were allegedly invaded by suspected land grabbers.

The protesters, led by baales and chiefs from the communities, are seeking the intervention of the state government, and the effective implementation of the existing land grabbing law in the state.

The existing land grabbing law provides for death penalty for convicted land grabbers who killed, and 25 years for convicted land grabbers who caused bodily harm in the process.

The Chief of Staff to the Governor told the protesters at the Governors Office, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, that a committee will soon be constituted to fine tune the existing law, preparatory to its amendment.

Salisu explains that land grabbing is a security threat to the agenda of the Abiodun administration, especially on its agriculture programmes.

On the security trust fund, Salisu says the Insepctor General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, will visit the state on Friday to have a meeting with Governor Abiodun on ways to design a new security architecture for the state.
