A Septuagenarian, Alhaji Ayodele Adeyemi has sued a businesswoman, Miss Omolara Ademola, at a Lagos High Court, Igbosere, over a landed property in Sangotedo area of Ajah in Lagos.

In the suit before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo, 75-year-old Adeyemi claimed he was the rightful owner of the 1.049 hectares of land.

He told the court he bought the land from the Bello Kosegbe Adewale family in 1992. The Deed of Conveyance dated July 19, 2005 was duly registered in the Lands Registry of Lagos, he said.

Joined as co-defendants in the suit are the Bashorun of Sangotedo, Chief Waheed Alabi and Alhaji Amusa Adewale. Two other persons, Mr. Tirmizi Tiamiyu and M. Mojeed Agoro also claimed they bought their land from the Adewale family.

But Ademola, through her lawyer, Chief Bolaji Ayorinde (SAN), urged the court to dismiss the suit on the grounds that it was baseless, vexatious, incompetent and abuse of court process.

She added that the deed of assignment and purchase receipts exhibited by the claimants were fraudulently procured.

The suit will be heard today
