Controversy over the ejection of a member of the Lagos House of Assembly Funmi Tejuosho fron her house is still raging as her husband Prince Kayode Tejuosho is insisting that the family through their company. Debam Mega Solutions paid the sum of N150.000.000 for the disputed property
Addressing the press, Prince Tejuosho claimed that the property situated at 3A Sasegbon Street,Ikeja GRA was acquired in line with the the Monetisation policy of the Federal Government adopted by Bola Ahmed Tinubu's administration,
He claimed that the current Chairman of APC in the state ,Henry Ajomale is also a beneficiary of that policy.
According to him, the family constructed a building of their choice on the said property from the dilapidated building handed over to them by the state government.
He condemned the brutal attack on the family, the forceful ejection and imprisonment against their wish by agents of the state government despite a subsisting litigation
"Let me quickly lay the facts bare to correct the falsehood being peddled by the Government to justify their unlawful act and outright violation of our rights. During the administration of former Governor Bola Tinubu, the Lagos State Government adopted the Federal Government’s property’s monetisation and redevelopment policy by offering several of its properties to public/civil servants occupying same for sale as well as companies under redevelopment schemes" He said
"This monetisation policy was continued by the Babatunde Raji Fashola government, as a result of which several officials benefited, including the present chairman of the Lagos chapter of the APC, Mr. Henry Dele Ajomale "
"In furtherance of this policy, my wife and I being the present occupiers were equally afforded the same opportunity of acquiring the property which we chose to do through a company in which we have interest. This Company called Debam Mega Solutions Limited, by a letter dated November 21, 2008 addressed to His Excellency, the Governor of Lagos State, Debam Mega Solutions Limited sought the concession and approval of the Governor to acquire the right of occupancy over the property at 3A, Sasegbon Street, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos."
According to him on Monday the 6th day of November 2017, the police officers who invaded the place again broke the doors and walls of the house, in Gestapo style.
He claimed that they also vandalised the property and harassed the children who are occupying it, and who had been imprisoned in the house since the 3rd day of November 2017.
He alleged that some of their properties has been pilfered.
Concluding, he appealed to Nigerians to condemn this rising tide of impunity saying it can also happen to anyone in the future .
