Land Grabbers eye Maharaji’s Property
OpenLife Nigeria reports that few months after suspected land grabbers invaded the property of Sat Guru Maharaj Ji and injured four of his followers, same land grabbers have struck again but this time pulling down the fence of his property located along Ibadan-Lagos expressway.
The incident which happened on Tuesday saw the land grabbers destroying a portion of the perimeter fence of the Maharaji village.
While speaking on the latest encroachment on his property, the Founder of the One Love Family, Sat Guru Maharaji said that men of the Oyo state joint security outfit known as Operation Burst comprising soldiers, civil defence and police officers and thugs also aided the land grabbers to carry out their dastardly act.
He added that just like last year’s encroachment on his property that was aided by Police officers; men of the Operation Burst also provided security for the land grabbers who pulled down his fence.
“For how long will the activities of land grabbers continue to grow? They are permeating every section of the country. The president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari and the Oyo State governor, Mr Seyi Makinde should come in.”
“By extension, traditional rulers like the Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji and the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi are also appealed to. The president has promised Nigerians that he would stop any form of anti-corruption in the country. We can’t sit down in Ibadan, the pacesetter city, and somebody will say he wants to throw away the judgment of the Court. It is against the Constitution.”
Speaking further Maharaji Ji said: “We have gotten two favourable judgments on this land and we have been using the land for farming until we saw these hoodlums invade the land.
“It is a pity that some people still engage in such heinous crimes in this country where government preaches rule of law and anti-corruption everyday,” Maharaj Ji posited.
Maharaj Ji called on the Director- General of Operation Burst; GOC 2 Division, Odogbo, Ibadan and the Oyo State Commissioner of Police to call their officers to order.
“What I know is that it’s illegal for any security agency to dabble into any land matters as that’s not in the jurisdiction of their service. Why on earth would people be using soldier or police to carry out nefarious act?”
“Am calling on the GOC, the Commissioner of Police and Director General of Operation Burst to call their men to order,” Maharaj Ji said.
