Guru Maharaj Ji Cries Out, Beg Makinde To Intervene As Landgrabbers Invade Land

Maharaj Ji has revealed how suspected land grabbers had injured four of his followers when they invaded his community on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

He said in a press conference, that the land was being used for farming and alleged the police for aiding the suspected land grabbers.

“We have gotten two favourable judgments on this land and we have been using the land for farming until we saw these hoodlums invade the land.

“It is a pity that some people still engage in such heinous crimes in this country where government preaches rule of law and anti-corruption every day,” he said.

Maharaj Ji said that the suspected land grabbers attacked and wounded his followers who had approached them over encroachment on the land.

He said that he had already petitioned the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 11 and the Commissioner of Police in Oyo State for the enforcement of the judgment.

“We wrote the police for the enforcement of the judgment and we petitioned Assistant Inspector General of Police office in Osogbo.

“Despite all these, they bribed their way for policemen to have led them here and gave them protection, definitely, something is wrong somewhere.

“We can not accept injustice. We don’t want to fight them because we believe in the rule of law and we are law-abiding citizens.
