As earlier warned by the Lagos state government that all properties of the state that have been illegally acquired will be retrieved, the government has finally begun process to bring culprits to book.
However, more facts have emerged over the true ownership of the 3 Sasegbon street property, purportedly being owned by Hon. Funmi Tehuosho, a former deputy speaker of Lagos state house of Assembly.
Reliable source informed that the property in question is the official residence of the deputy speaker which she occupied while she was in the position but clandestinely appropriated to his personal through a company she has a vested interest.
It was reliably gathered that many of such properties were cheaply sold and sometime outrightly given out with no recourse to principles.
On the part of Hon. Tejuosho, she was said to have ignored several letters sent to her to vacate the property for another dwputy speaker, rather she headed to the High court to prove sale of the property to her company.
The recent move by state to begin to retrieve such houses according to a source might not be unconnected to a committee formed last year to recover govt properties either illegaly appropriated by former office holders or sold at rediculous prices.
The committee is said to have submitted it’s report and not a few past and current govt officials are said to be affected
It would be recalled that Hon. Tejuosho allegedly rushed to the media to allege withchunt by the government she is also part of.
