Lagoon Park Global Resources Remains Our Attorney, Says Iyalode Efunroye Tinubu Estate’s BOT

The Board of Trustees (BOT) of the Estate of late Madam Efunroye Tinubu, has refuted claims that they have changed their Attorney, Lagoon Park Global Resources.

Reacting to a statement published in one of the national dailies, the secretary of the board of Trustee, Mr. Temilola Daud Adesanya, described the publication as false, stressing that the Trustees have not met to take such decision.

Adesanya, the said public notice did not represent the position of the family, adding that one of the two members of the Trustees was indisposed as at the time the publication was issued, and could not have appended his signature on it.
He therefore warned that any person or group of persons that deals with the purported new Attorney, Walaris Nigeria, do so at his or her own peril, as the firm does not have the support of the late Efunroye Tinubu family.

Mr Adesanya, specifically stated that the BoT Chairman, Alhaji Chief Shittu Adio Kassim Lumosa, and the Vice Chairman, Dr. Gabriel O. Fasetire have denied signing the said publication, as there was no time such decision was taken.

The BOT statement reads: ‘’our attention has been drawn to the publication on page 21 of the Punch Newspaper of Friday, 28th October 2022 purportedly signed by, Alhaji Shittu Adio Kassim Lumosa, Dr. Gabriel O. Fasetire, and Chief Shafiu Kassim Lumosa.

‘’The said publication is a false statement, and untruth, which is not to the knowledge and consent of Alhaji Chief Shittu Adio Kassim Lumosa (the Chairman) of the board of Trustee, Dr. Gabriel O. Fasetire (the Vice Chairman who has been indisposed and bedridden for more than a month) and Mr. Temilola Daud Adesanya (the secretary) of the board of Trustee of Madam Efunroye Tinubu Estate, as there was no meeting to discuss the appointment of any new attorney.

‘’The general public is hereby enjoined to disregard the entire content of the publication and the press release as the signature of the Chairman, Alhaji Chief Kassim Lumosa, and that or the Vice Chairman, Gabriel O. Fasetire are being forged.

‘’Consequently, you are to be informed that whoever deals with Walaris (Nig.) Ltd whose registered office address is at WALARIS House along Akute ljoko Road, beside Conoil Filling Station, Alausa Bus Stop, Olanbe, Ogun State as the attorney of the Estate of late Efunroye Tinubu does so at his or her own peril.”

The statement added that members of the trustees appointed by the court are Alhaji Adio Kassim Lumosa (Chairman), Chief G O Fasetire (vice Chairman) Chief Bilade Adams (Secretary,deceased), and Chief Shafiu Kassim Lumosa (Assistant Secretary)

It stated that following the death of Chief Bilade Adams, the Sobowale family in a letter dated September 15, 2018, written to the BoT forwarded the name of Temilola Dauda Adesanya as a replacement.

The statement added that the Board of Trustees at a meeting held on September 30, 2018, deliberated on the letter and directed the family lawyer to proceed to court and process his order of inclusion as an administrator and secretary to the board of trustees. In accordance with the Enrolment Order dated June 17, 2020, issued by Justice I.O Kasali of the high court of Lagos State, Mr. Temilola Adesanya was joined as a member of the Board of Trustees.

The statement also called on the Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Lagos State Governor, Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, and the Inspector General of Police to investigate the allegation of forgery in the said publication.
