Muslims in Osun mark new Hijrah year with fanfare

As the adminstration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola winds up, owners of properties demolished in Osogbo, the state capital in 2014 to pave for road construction said they have waited endlessly for their compensation and pleaded with the governor to pay them.


The landlords whose buildings were demolished along Fakunle, MDS, Ajegunle, Igbona and Ayetoro areas said the governor promised to compensate them before the buildings were demolished and that they have not received the compensation since then.

Speaking on behalf of the landlords, Moshood Oladejo pleaded with Aregbesola to expedite action on the payment of their compensation that amounts to N 2 billion which he promised to pay them since 2014.


He said many of the landlords have died compensation and that those that are still alive need their money to take care of themselves.

"We want  to appeal to Governor Rauf Aregbesola to pay our compensation so that we can enjoy it while alive. Since the demolition of our our houses in 2014, we had been leaving in abject poverty and many of us have died", Moshood said.

Also speaking, Mrs Mariam Abiona whose property was also demolished appealed to the governor to pay the compensation. Abiona said the property that was demolished was her only source of income.

Another property owner that was also affected in the demolition, Alhaja Adefunke Haolat said she depended on the property to survive and pleaded with Aregbesola to pay their compensation.
