Federal Government House destroy in Ondo by Thugs 


Some armed hoodlums invaded the Federal Government Housing Scheme in Ondo, which is located at Alagbaka Governments Reservation Area GRA, in the state capital.

They fired several gunshot to scare away workers at the site, injuring many of them who scampered for safety.

One of the workers attacked at the site was said to have passed out when beaten by the hoodlums.

It was gathered that several buildings that were at lintel levels were pulled down, plumbing pipes were mutilated, over five storex tank’s were broken by the thugs.

The managing Director, the company handling the project, Medaville Building and Construction co. Ltd, Otunba Ademola Akin Benson alleged that the Deji of Akure, Oba Aladelusi Aladetoyinbo Sponsored the attack.

Akin Benson alleged that the Monarchy has been making unlawful moves to grab the land from him and halt Federal Government Project.

He said, “Oba Aladetoyinbo has been using thugs to interrupt work on the site and sometimes drop charms to scare him and the workers. He lamented that over N50m had been lost to the perennial attacks by thugs adding that thugs have persistently place fetish objects on the project site and chased workers away.

Akin Benson said that the spot where the Deji lays claim to as community land was a distance away and not the spot where work is going on in line with extant Court judgment.

The Chairman noted that “Several time Deji has come here to beat people; two weeks ago he sent his boys to kidnap some of our workers here. We reported it to the police and appropriate authorities. Adding that “We are in court. My lawyers have filed section 49 against him which he always run away.

He explained that the land belongs to the Federal Government but was ceded to Medaville Building and Construction Co. Ltd to develop.

“We are doing this in order to ease housing problems in Ondo State. What they did this morning was a disturbance of the peace of the community. The Federal Government is aware of the Frequent harassment and disturbance.

But spokesman to the Deji of Akure Kingdom, Michael Adeyeye, in a swift response to the allegation said the “Palace is surprised by such unfounded allegation”.

Michael said; “You know the Deji is a complete gentleman who believes strongly in dialogue and the rule of law. He is never a violent man and neither does he believe in such.
