Lagos Tenancy Law: Banker Drags Lawyer- Landlord to Disciplinary Committee


…As Lagos Group vows to follow the matter to logical end. 

A Lagos based banker, Miss Omolabake Olaitan Oyelami with phone number:-+234802***2294, has dragged a Lagos Lawyer, Mr. Okwudili Alagbu and landlord of a residential building located at N0. 30, S close, 23-Road, Festac Town before the Legal Regulatory Disciplinary Committee over misconduct which against the legal conduct of a legal practitioner.

Miss Omolabake Oyelami has alleged that Alagbu (+2348024432) along with his wife, Celestial Chinelo Alagbu (+2348036039) and their Children had nearly snuffed life from her, with no offence than being their tenant and banker.

Meanwhile, Alagbu had earlier issued a six months quit notice dated 31st of October, 2020 to Oyelami and the notice would lapse by April 30th, 2021, but instead of Alagbu who claimed to be a legal practitioner to wait till the lapse of the quit notice, he directed his immediate family members including his wife and children to be fermenting trouble with Oyelami so as to frustrate life out of her.

After the attack of December 25th,2020 against her(Oyelami), she reported Alagbus to the Festac Divisional Police Station where the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) ordered for the immediate arrest of Alagbu and his wife, Celestial Chinelo and the instruction were carried out by Woman Inspector and Investigation Police Officer (IPO), Caroline (+23480***1834) and Alagbu and his wife have been on Police bail since then after they have promised the Police that they would not foment trouble with her again by waiting for the end of April,2021, where the purported quit notice would lapse.

They did not follow their earlier promised with the security agent and
started the trouble again with her on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th
of April, 2021, three days for her to pack out of rented apartment in their residential building which made Oyelami to report back to Festac Divisional Police Station where officers at the Station including; CRO, Olanloye Najeem, Abubakar and Woman Police Officer,Iniusa Rose attended to her.

Although, a Lagos based group, Save Lagos Group (SLG) had come to the
aid of the innocent Lady by vowing to ensure justice on the matter, saying that the group would write a petition to the appropriate and concern authorities for notification and necessary action.

In a Petition Letter dated and signed by the Convener of the group, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman and forwarded to the Legal Practitioner Regulatory Committee,President Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Inspector General of Police (IGP), National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and host of others for necessary action.

Comrade Sulaiman described the action of Alagbu as unlawful, illegal, unconstitutional and undemocratic and which against the conduct of genuine Legal Practitioners, adding Alagbus have vowed to go after the life of innocent woman when she leaves their residential rented apartment.

He therefore called on the Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) and Lagos State Commissioner of Police (CP) for immediate re-arrest and possible prosecution of Alagbu and his wife, Celestial Chinelo with their children in order to save the life of innocent Lady from their hand, adding that if anything happens to Omolabake Oyelami, they should be held responsible.
