Titled, “H.B. No. 03/2016- A bill for a law to Prohibit Forcible Entry and Occupation of Landed Properties, Violent and Fraudulent Conducts in a Relation To Landed Properties, Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, Cultism and Allied matters and For other Matters Incidental thereto or Connected Therewith”, the Speaker Suraju Ishola Adekunbi ordered that the clean copy of the bill be sent to the state governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun for his assent after it was passed by the House.

The bill proposed 25 years imprisonment or death sentence if life is involved, for anyone found guilty of forceful takeover of land with the use of any fire arms, offensive weapon, obnoxious or chemical materials or the said offender causes any form of injury or uses violence on any person.
