The Lagos State Government has charged two men – Dr Olawunmi Awosedo and Olamidayo Olukoga – at the Special Offences’ Court for allegedly selling properties under the receivership of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON).

The suspects allegedly committed the offence last December 12 at Grant House, by Goshen Beach Estate, Lekki, Lagos.

The prosecution said they had no power to sell the properties, not being directors of Knight Rook Ltd.

Among the properties is Block O, Plot 12A Victoria Park Estate, Igbokushu, Lekki Penninsula, Lago, which they allegedly sold to Mr and Mrs Nduka and Chinelo Dike.

The suspects also allegedly sold other properties in the same estate, including Block X, Plot 21 to Mr Omotayo Lawal and Mrs Oreofe Tayo-Lawal, and Block Y, Plot 7, to Bashirat Ogunmakin.

They also allegedly sold Block Y, Plot 33A to Mr and Mrs Augustine and Joy Uwagboe; Block Y, Plot 10 to Mr Ayodeki Aderibigbe; Block Y, Plot 1 to Mr Ayodeji Shomide; Block O, Plot 10 to Mr and Mrs Saheed and Zainab Alalade; Plot O, Plot 12B to Mr and Mrs Oluwatosin and Olamidayo Olukoya; and Block O, Plot 12B.

Other properties in the estate sold by the suspects are: Block Y, Plot 21A sold to Mr Felix Banebo; Block Y, Plot 22A to Mr Ademola Otufale; Block Y, Plot 23 and Block B, Plots 1 and 2 to Mr Adedayo Shittu; Block B, Plot 1A; Block V, Plot 11; Block J, Plot 15; Block O, Plots 5 and 13 to Mr Tayven Nigeria Ltd.

Awosedo and Olukoga were also said to have sold Block R, Plot 9B and Block B, Plots 1 and 2 to Mr and Mrs John and Linda Etukudo.

Others are Block 8, Flat 6 to Mr and Mrs Olaseni and Temitope Alabede; Block Y, Plot 20 to Mr Adedoyin Ashiru; and Block D, Plot 19 to The Address Homes Limited; and Block Y, Plot 11 to Olatoun Bankole.

The suspects allegedly sold Block Y, Plot 1B to Mr and Mrs Olugbenga and Oluwatoyin Ogunlalu; Block Y, Plot 5 to Mr Monday Ataga; Block 14, Flat 4 to Mr and Mrs Joseph and Jacqueline Akabueze; Block X, Plot 23C to Sharon Oseni; Block X, Plot 23A to Mr Eddie Osarenkhoe; and Block Y, Plot 2 to Mr and Mrs Sylvester and Mopelola Oyeye.

The rest are Blot F, Plot 1A to Mrs Comfort Meshinloye and Block O, Plot 10B, which was sold to Mr Patrick Eronmwon.

The alleged offence contravenes Section 8 (1) (b) of the Lagos State Properties Protection Law 2016.

The court ordered substituted service following the state’s inability to serve the defendants with the charge.
