Joined in the suit as other defendants are the Governor of Ogun State, D.G. Bureau of land and survey, OOPL ventures Ltd, the incorporated trustee of OOPL foundation, DLK Aluminium Products Ltd, beneficiaries of the Estate of late Chief Sesan Soluade, Chief Lola Oyerinde and Alhaji Alli Ajibode, who also have one thing or the other to do with the land.

The plaintiffs that include, Chiefs Benjamin Ogunbona, Akeem Taoreed, Gbenga Amos, Dele Taiwo, and Musiliu Oyegunle(all representing Ijeun Lukosi community) are claiming ownership of the land and asking the court to return it to them.

The community is saying that the land, which was taken from them by the state government but no longer used for the original purpose of the acquisition and shared to private individuals should be returned to them.

It will be recalled that early this year, the court granted an order restraining the defendants from destroying the shrines located on the land.
