Issues Arising from the Federal Government's Lawsuit at the High Court of Lagos State to Recover Possession of 149 Properties Located in Lagos State from their Current Unauthorized Occupiers

On 14 September 2017, the Federal Ministry of Justice, for and on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria, entered into an Agency Agreement with Nurudeen & Co. Nigeria Limited for the purposes of identifying and recovering possession of landed properties belonging to the Federal Government of Nigeria within the States of the Federation and which are currently being used and occupied by unauthorized persons who do not have the license or authority of the Federal Government of Nigeria to occupy the properties ("the Agency Agreement").

Based on the Agency Agreement, Messrs. Nurudeen & Co. Nigeria Limited ("the Agent") identified 149 (One hundred and forty-nine) properties allegedly owned by the Federal Government of Nigeria and which are being occupied by squatters. Instructively, about 95% of the identified properties are located within virtually all the major streets in the old Ikoyi axis of Lagos State.

The Agent has, through its solicitors, Messrs. Gani Faniyi & Co., commenced a lawsuit at the High Court of Lagos State for the recovery of the possession of the identified 149 (One hundred and forty-nine) properties.

This paper seeks to discuss the issues arising from the lawsuit and to highlight the steps which any member of the public who has an interest in any of the identified properties should take in order to protect his/her interest in the properties.
