The Ekiti State government has advised residents of Olorunda and Olorunsogo communities in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, to approach the state Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development to obtain valid documents that would legalise their claim to the ownership of their properties in their areas.

The Commissioner for Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Febisola Adewale, reiterated this during a routine control and enforcement exercise embarked upon by the Inspectorate Department of the ministry to the affected areas.

Adewale said that the land was initially allocated to the state’s university but suffered encroachment through the activities of the “so-called land owners.”

He advised occupants to comply with the state government’s earlier directive requiring occupants of the land to acquire necessary documents, such as survey plan, building plan, Certificate of Occupancy and payment N100,000 per plot as regularization fee for them to become the rightful owners of such properties.
