  1. This Law is a good development and will improve the real estate sector in Lagos State. Other states in Nigeria should generate similar reforms in acquisition and development of land. I thank the government of Lagos State for this innovation.

  2. Lagos has always been at the forefront of innnovative legislation in Nigeria. This has tremendously enriched our jurisprudence, kudos to the Lagos State government for the giant strides.

  3. This law is a laudable effort by the Lagos State Government. We hope to see its efficient and transparent enforcement.

  4. The Law, though a welcome development, seem to be in conflict with the defence of bona fide claim of right as established and allowed by the criminal law.

  5. Veritable legislation as usual of Lagos. Commendable highlights, too. Your last word is of great concern that other states like Ogun, Port Harcourt etc, in no long time, follow suit.
    Kudos!

  6. Lagos, the centre of excellence has done it again to maintain the lead in the legal industry by this wonderful legislation to curtail the excesses of land grabbers’ / speculators. The government should also ensure enforcement of the laws, less it becomes a toothless bulldog. Kudos. A.Chimezie Nwosu Esq

  7. I welcome this law in our jurisprudence. It’s been long awaited. What worries me though is the purpose the customary fee or foundation fee will serve? This mind you is coming on the heels of payment for purchases and other sundry payments which are quite long and inexplainable a times. I think it is as if the law is taking back what it has given in a kind of way. Often times family heads are not ignorant of what the so called omo oni lies are doing. We need to watch this section closely so the whole purpose of this laudable law is not defeated. Congrats Gov. Ambode and The A.G Adeniji Kazeem. Itesi wa ju Eko lo je wa logun o!

  8. Well, this Law is a welcome development, however the areas of conflict with criminal law regarding possession of arms and dangerous weapons have to be properly addressed.Moreover, implementation of this law is where the whole matter lies.

  9. The law can only be regarded as a deserving solution to a menace unfounded in any modern society.All hands must be on deck to ensure an efficacious implementation and enforcement as found necessary.Kudos to the LASG for an innovative piece of legislation.

  10. These so called LAND GRABBERS ARE TRYING TO BRING THE BEAST IN HUMAN AT IKORODU ADEGBOSE ESTATE. OLU ODO IGBOGGBO IKORODU.. THE COURT JUDGEMENTS OBTAINED BY CHIEF TAJUDEEN ODOFIN AND AJOSE.. IKD 47/23 ARE FRAUD, THE INTIMIDATION IS GETTING TO UNBEARABLE THAT MIGHT LEAD TO BREAKING DOWN OF PEACE SOON. GOD BLESS LAGOS STATE
