Obaseki Revokes Ize-Iyamu’s Ownership Of 18 Hectare Land

Governor Godwin Obaseki has revoked the ownership of land belonging to Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

The governor made this known in a letter sent to Ize-Iyamu by the Edo State Geographic Information Service (GIS) dated Thursday, July 22, 2021.

The letter which was signed by the Chief Registrar of Titles and Instruments, Nora Ohiwerei, added that Ize-Iyamu’s right of occupancy on the 18-hectare property located at Amagba, Benin City has been revoked.

It reads: “I am directed to inform you that the Edo State Governor Mr Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki has formally revoked the statutory right on all that parcel of land measuring approximately 18.0736 hectares in Amagba village area.”

Recall that Ize-Iyamu, who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Edo 2020 governorship election, contested against Obaseki, who was the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Saturday reacted to the arrest of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, in the Benin Republic.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, who spoke after casting his vote at Polling Unit 019 Ward 08, Ikoyi II, during the Local Government/Council Areas election on Saturday, said the trial of the agitator is a difficult time for the South-West Governors.

According to him, a lot of people had steps being “taken quietly and privately.”

The Lagos State Governor when asked why there was presumed silence of the governors on the arrest of Igboho, he replied, “These are very difficult times for all of us. I can assure you that people are working behind the scenes.

“At occasions like this, it’s not by how many Press people you call. I’m aware that a lot of people have responses that they are doing quietly and privately and it doesn’t have to be a public conversation.”
