Ogun NURTW Chairman Denies Involvement In Land Grabbing Allegation



The new Chairman of Ogun state chapter of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Alhaji Akeem Bodunrin Iyeru has denied involvement in land grabbing allegation levelled against him by the Malomo family of Elewa village in Abeokuta, the state capital.

Iyeru also said he has forwarded a petition to the Commissioner of Police (CP), Bashing Makama to wade into the matter and unravel the allegation which attracted a 25 years jail term.

Speaking with LEADERSHIP in Abeokuta over the land grabbing allegation, the NURTW chairman said he and other members of his maternal grandfather’s family were highly embarrassed by a media report which he said has painted their family in bad light.

The head of Malomo family in Elewa village, Moses Olayemi had published a report in one of the national dailies (not Leadership newspapers) wherein he alleged that Iyeru led some hoodlums to their land in Elewa village and forcefully ejected owners before reselling same to other buyers.

But reacting to the report, Iyeru said the family has officially reported the matter to the police and also instructed their lawyer to institute a legal action against the head of Malomo family, Olayemi and others for conniving together and launched an attack on his family members when they visited the disputed land.

The new transport chairman in Ogun explained that Olayemi also connived with a surveys, one Alhaji Basiru Durowoju to register another survey plan on the land which had earlier been surveyed by his maternal grandfather before his death few years back.

He listed others who would be arrested to include one Liafis Milengbe, Kuburat Milengbe as well as the community chairman of Elewa village, located along the Onigangan road in Abeokuta.
