Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwo, has urged Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State, and Timothy Owoeye, Speaker of House of Assembly, to pass a law that would impose severe punishment and penalty on anyone involved in land grabbing.
He stressed that the upsurge in land grabbing can no longer be condoned as this should be legislatively addressed so as to protect the heritage and landed assets of the people.
In view of this, the Oba appealed to the Osun state government not to take the matter lightly. He urged government to act fast before the concern becomes blown out of proportion.
Oba Akanbi in his statement said, ‘I appeal to Governor Oyetola to make a law that will recommend punishment for land grabbers. The reports of land grabbing in the state are disturbing and call for legislative and judicial attention from the government.’
