Commuters face hard times in Badagry as commercial drivers stay off roads

Published

on

Some commuters in Badagry and its environs were on Monday morning stranded as commercial bus drivers embarked on an indefinite strike, alleging arbitrary collection of levies from them by officials of Lagos State Motor Parks and Garage Management.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent who monitored bus stops in Badagry reports that commuters were seen waiting for buses to convey them to different destinations without success.

NAN reports that at the popular roundabout in Badagry, many residents going to Ojo and other places returned due to lack of commercial buses to convey them.

Mr Idowu Jimoh, a staff of Public Complaints Commission (PCC) in Badagry told NAN that he had waited for close to two hours at the roundabout for a bus to convey him to his office in Lagos.

He appealed to the Lagos State government and aggrieved transporters to resolve the issue amicably for peace to reign.

According to Jimoh, when two elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers, so it is the masses that are suffering for what they don’t know.

NAN reports that the situation was the same at Mowo bus stop, MTN bus stop, Ibile bus stop, Magbon bus stop, Churchgate and Agbara.

At Mowo bus stop, tricycles, known as Keke Maruwa, and commercial motorcycles were on ground to convey stranded commuters to their various destinations.

Mrs Elizabeth Ojo, a foodseller who was going to the market, said the tricycle drivers had increased the transport fare by 50 per cent due to the strike by the commercial bus drivers.

Ojo urged the government to meet the people and resolve it before it went out of hand.

Meanwhile, Mr Taofeek Hassan, the Assistant Secretary, Joint Drivers’ Welfare Association of Nigeria, told NAN in a telephone interview that commercial bus drivers would not go back to work unless government intervened.

According to him, the bus drivers left the road because of extortion of their people by the park managers.

Tenant sues landlady for refusing to sell her house to him

Published

on

By

A high court in Lagos has dismissed a case filed by one Ademola Onitiju, a tenant, who sued his landlady for not selling her house to him.

In 2021, Onitiju, a retired air commodore and legal practitioner, took Theodosia Ogunnaike, the landlady of a four-bedroom duplex at Dolphin Estate in Ikoyi, to court for selling the property to another person after his initial negotiation with her.

The 59-year-old tenant, who started residing in the house in December 2015, said the property was first offered to him as first option to purchase but he did not pay for it immediately. Onitiju said he was initially asked to pay N170 million for the property, but he offered to pay N90 million instead, which was rejected by the landlady.

The retired airforce officer said during the renegotiation process, he sold two family properties to enable him to match the purchase price of N135 million which was later requested for. He said he asked for a bank account detail to pay the purchase price, but he was not provided with any until the property was sold out to one Samuel Dare, a retired colonel.

Onitiju admitted that the defendants did not ask him to sell the two family properties, “but they did by conduct when they insisted on the N135 million purchase price”. He also told the court that he does not have evidence of where the N135 million was lodged.

The tenant asked the court to set aside the sale of the property to the retired colonel.

Ogunnaike, a widow, said the property belongs to her daughter but she was managing it for her. The landlady said Onitiju used to pay his N4.5 million annual rent to her bank account and the rent was not increased during his stay, while they had a cordial relationship.

The landlady said the offer to buy the house was first made to Onitiju, but he did not have money to pay. Then, she terminated the offer made to the retired airforce officer after he made two counter offers of N90 million and N1oo million, and the sale of the property was thrown open to the public.

In her ruling on June 20, 2022, Bola Okikiolu-Ighile, the presiding judge, said Onitiju’s evidence before the court did not support any of the reliefs sought by him, and his case was bereft of facts. She subsequently dismissed the case.

“I find it difficult to grant any of the reliefs sought in the claims (i)-(vii). The claimant shall relinquish possession of the property to the new owners forthwith,” the judge ruled.

Onitiju has, however, appealed against the judgment.

Lagos thugs attack Akeem Adeyemi while on movie set (Video)

Akeem Adeyemi, the Nollywood actor, has been attacked by thugs on a movie set in Lagos.

Wunmi Toriola, an actress, disclosed this via her Instagram page on Tuesday.

She said Adeyemi was attacked by “area boys” while he was filming in the Gbagada axis of the state.

Toriola also shared a video wherein Adeyemi is seen with a bloody eye lamenting about the “brutal attack”.

“See what area boys did. To what end. Peaceful filming turned this. Help. Sawmill Gbagada,” she wrote.

Reacting to the incident, Adebayo Salami, the ace actor, revealed that the culprit has been arrested.

He also charged the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) to intervene and ensure the safety of its members.

“This is an unacceptable experience. Though I am glad to know that the culprit has been apprehended by officers of the law, I enjoin the leadership of @tampanglobal to look into this situation as a matter of urgency,” he wrote.

“The safety and security of filmmakers are paramount to us. Beyond the physical assault, losing a day of production means more money has to be spent above the budgeted funds. No filmmaker wants to go through such stress. So sorry @iamakeemadeyemi and other production members.”
