Lizzy Anjorin’s husband Lateef Lawal involved in land grabbing dispute



Lateef Lawal, the husband of the Nollywood actress Lizzy Anjorin, is embroiled in an alleged “land grabbing” dispute.

TheCable obtained court files listing Lawal among individuals sued for demolishing structures on a property owned by one Faith Ojo.

Ojo, in the lawsuit, is identified as a Nigerian businesswoman based in the United States.

The land with plan no “AGA/2582/037J/2020/LA”, the claimant revealed, is located in Okun-Ajah, Eti-Osa Lagos.

Among the defendants are Rasheed Olukosi, Muniru Olukosi, Saheed Olukosi, Kareem Wasiu Jagun, Sulaimon Bolaji, Muritala Musbau, and Kehinde Jagun.

They were accused alongside Lateef of demolishing some structures on the land in what Ojo has described as “land grabbing” in her suit.

Sources familiar with the matter tell TheCable that the police have been probing cases of “land grabbing” involving the defendants.

The claimant said the activities of the defendants on the said land caused damages and amounted to a trespass.

Ojo sought N30 million as compensation and asked that the defendants cover both the cost of litigation and petitioning the police.

She sought a “perpetual injunction” against the defendants “from entering, developing, and occupying” the two-plot land.

The case against Lawal is becoming public knowledge just as reports are purporting that he escaped arrest in Ikoyi on February 5.

It also comes days after it was alleged that Lizzy Anjorin, his actress wife, made a fake mobile banking transfer in a Lagos store.

The transaction, it was reported, happened after she purchased goods worth N91,000 from a store inside a Lagos market.

The actress, however, has denied the allegations and argued that the video was a “setup” targeted against her person.

Lateef Lawal, as of when this report was filed, has yet to publicly comment on the land dispute and associated controversies.

Speaking on the recent episode of the Menisms Podcast, the singer recalled the incident from years before.

“I gave my parents a lot of trouble when I was growing up. When I was really small, when I couldn’t walk, my mum left me in the kitchen. She was about to put the lantern on, so she poured the kerosene inside a small cup and then she put it beside the lantern and left to do something. She came back and found out that the kerosene she had poured in the cup was empty because I drank everything to the last drop. She didn’t even know because I was still sitting there, keeping my cool. She didn’t even know because I was still sitting there, keeping my cool,” he said.

He said that his mother was unaware of the situation at hand until she noticed that he had began to have hiccups.

“It was when she smelt my mouth that she realised, and my dad wasn’t around that time so there was nobody to calm her down so she drove to the hospital like a mad person,” he revealed.

The singer revealed that the first hospital they went to refused to treat him because he was “too small” and urged his mother to “let it go because there was nothing they could do.”

Concluding his story, he said, “Then she took me to another hospital and the doctor was a pastor who assured her that they’d revive me and they did. But I had other issues like my teeth colouration and I’ve had this teeth colouration since then.”
