Ogun prince hacked to death in fight over property

Oba Olipede is embroiled in a dispute over a property at the Federal Housing Estate, Phase 6, Surulere, Alagbado area. Years back, his family was evicted from the property and later regained possession after approaching the court, sources said.

It was gathered that one of the monarch’s wives and their children are living in the controversial property.
But on Saturday suspected agents of Oba Olipede’s opponent suddenly came to the house with alleged fresh court documents indicating he has obtained another judgement, which awarded him legal ownership of the house.

The suspected land grabbers’ demand that the monarch’s family vacate the house on the spot was resisted by 29-year-old Prince Jamiu Olipede.

“When they first came, we called our father on phone and he rushed down to Lagos from Ota to have a word with them. He went to their office with Jamiu and told them that the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) allocated the house to him and other allottees and they can confirm at FHA’s office.

“But they insisted that we must vacate the property or else they would pull it down. Surprisingly they invaded our house in the night and hacked Jamiu to death,” the deceased’s elder sister, Ganiyat, told our correspondent.
