Insecurity: Ogun Threatens To Revoke Title-Hold On Land Used As Illegal Dumpsites

The Ogun State government has said it will revoke Title-hold on all abandoned land spaces used as illegal dumpsites across the State for security reasons.

This was made known in a statement issued and signed by Mr. Ola Oresanya, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Environment and Chief Executive Officer of the Ogun State Waste Management Authority (OGWAMA).

Oresanya in the statement which a copy emailed to newsdishng.com stated that the State government took the decision after it was discovered that several parcels of land abandoned by their owners have been converted to illegal dumpsites which are now haven for ritualists and den for armed robbers.

Some Of The Abandoned Lands Turned Dumpsites

“These abandoned land spaces converted to illegal dumpsites not only constitute security risk to their immediate communities, they also pose major health risk because of their environmental nuisance, so the need to revoke the Title hold on them”.

Oresanya added that the State government has now directed its relevant government organ to begin the process of revoking the Title-hold on the land in public interest.

The OGWAMA boss, therefore advised owners of such abandoned land spaces being used as illegal dumpsites to immediately clear them of the waste and restore them to their original state or risk forfeiting them as the State government will not fold its hands and watch the carelessness of few individuals to become a major security and health risks to the good people of the State.
