the grass you see another person has started foundation work on your
land or even the land you bought legally with no complains at all and
when you begin work, your workers call you that somebody has brought
some thugs to pursue your workers claiming true ownership of the land
and the person is banding around an old purchase receipt given to him
by the family head he bought from in 1978 etc.
In short you have all come across these kind of stories either personally or heard
about them from either a family member, friend or colleague and most of them have
either given up or abandoned the land to fore go the millions spent to purchase the
land and they have moved on quietly to count their losses with regrets and lose faith
in purchasing lands.
Well it shouldnt all be like this because now I will show you some of the legal
remedies you have when such issues like this arise with some personal examples to
aid you. Now I have to warn you here that most of these remedies have been
successful 85% of the time and there are some that end up badly but this is just a
guide and aid to assist you to prevent such an issue happening and if it is presently
happening to you, follow some of these steps and God willing your land or something
better should come back to you.
FROM OUR MAIL BOX QUESTION:
I JUST BOUGHT A LAND AWHILE AGO AND 6 MONTHS LATER I GOT A
CALL THAT SOMEBODY HAS ENCROACHED ON MY LAND AND THAT
PERSON ENCROACHING IT, IS CLAIMING FULL OWNERSHIP OF THE
LAND THAT I LEGALLY PURCHASED FROM ONE AJAMGBADI FAMILY
MEMBER AT LANGBASA IN IBEJU LEKKI LOCAL GOVERNMENT WHO
TOLD ME THEN WHEN I WANTED TO BUY THE LAND THAT IT WAS
HIS FAMILY LAND AND IT HAS NEVER BEEN SOLD TO ANYONE.
THE OTHER PARTY THAT HAS NOW ENCROACHED MY LAND IS
TELLING ME ANOTHER FAMILY REPRESENTED BY ONE AJANAKU OF
THE AGBALAGBI CHIEFTAINCY FAMILY IN THE SAME LANGBASA IN
IBEJU LEKKI LOCAL GOVERNMENT IS CLAIMING TO BE THE FAMILY
HEAD AND HAS PREVIOUSLY SOLD THE SAME LAND TO HIM 9MONTHS
AGO AND HE TRAVELED TO THE UK TO GATHER MONEY TO DO HIS
FOUNDATION.
NOW THE TRESPASSER IS BACK TO CLAIM FULL OWNERSHIP OF THE
LAND. WHAT DO I DO? I HAVE INVESTED MY LAST SAVINGS IN THIS
LAND AND I DONT WANT TO LOSE MY MONEY AND LAND. I AM
CONFUSED! WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP I SHOULD TAKE TO RE-CLAIM
MY LAND? PLEASE ADVISE ME OMONILE LAWYER!!!
ANSWER: Before you take that matter up with the police station or attempt to go
to court that your land has been trespassed upon by an Usurper, you must first
check yourself and the documents you possess as proof of ownership to know
whether you have the following right documents to aid your case:
A. An Omonile Family Receipt from the Accredited Family Head and witnessed
by both the Family Secretary and Principal Member stating their Family name and
the date the Land was bought including the location of the plot of land, amount and
known Family address.
B. A Duly signed Deed of Assignment showing the parties to the Agreement, the
Family Members who sold the piece of land to you which must include the Family
Members who sold the land to you which must include the Family Head, Secretary
and Principal witness and it must be duly stamped.
C. A Valid Survey Plan showing all the Beacon Numbers, the Survey Plan number,
the name of the Surveyor who surveyed it, the Year it was Surveyed including proof
of Lodgment of the Red copy at the Survey-Generals office.
D. Mode of Payment both through a Bank Check or Draft and including witness to
the Transaction.
This is the Position of the Law that was established in The Supreme Court Case
between NWOKOROBIA V NWOGU IN 2009 where it was stated that one of
the Ways to prove ownership of title to land is by Production of Documents of
Title.

What this means is that for you to prove that you have a better title over the person
claiming ownership of the same land, you must have a lot of Documents to boost
your claim of Ownership of that land better than the other person.
TRUE STORY:
There was an Omonile Lawyer Reader I assisted to buy 2 plots at Okun Mopo Ibeju
last year owned by a particular Omonile family branch. They were the toughest I
have ever encountered. Over the years they had sold lands to various people and
issued them only family receipt and nothing more. They were so ignorant about their
lands that they didnt even know their lands had a Government Excision.
Anyway, apart from the receipt, they issued no other form of documents to back up
the Buyers claim and even a Survey plan wasnt something they recommended.
They would normally demarcate lands using Bamboo sticks to show which land they
sold and the ones separated. I fought with them for weeks with the aim of educating
them that apart from the Family Receipt, they should acknowledge a proof of receipt
of the money via a Bank Draft. My demands caused Wahala because they were used
to collecting Millions of Naira in CASH so that they would share the money
immediately amongst themselves. Using a Bank was a Taboo and I stood my ground
for them to accept payment via a bank draft and acknowledge it.
Also I finally forced them to sign a deed of assignment. In fact this one was akin to
the Iraq war. They refused wholesomely because they werent used to such
protocols. They abused and rained insults on me as an ALAKOWE LAWYER,
LAWYER TOO GOOD, MR PROTOCOL ETC I wasnt deterred and made sure I
finally had my way and the Omonile Lawyer Reader had all the documents he
needed. They collected another 100,000 Naira for the signing of the documents and
the Omonile Lawyer Reader complained bitterly about that extra 100k and that i
should have just taken the receipt and walked away.
Little did he know 1 year after that the LAWYER TOO GOOD stubbornness of mine
will come to assist him. When another person came from nowhere to lay claim to his
own land saying thats where the Omoniles gave him, he could only produce a receipt
showing payment for one plot of land.
That one plot was not described or defined in any way and he couldnt trace the
exact person who signed the receipt for him and when we got to the police station,
We tendered our deed of assignment from the family directly, the Survey plan
showing the exact specification and location of the land, a signed copy of the
acknowledgement of money and official receipt including a copy of the Excision
tracing the land to it and counter signed by the Cabinet Office at Alausa plus a
picture of the Family receiving money and signing the documents. The other party
was weak and kept on studying our documents till he gave up and promised to come
back to shoot all the family members if they didnt return his money.
What killed the other partys claim to that land was the lack of production of
Documents to title. If he had all his documents intact and was as thorough as me,
he wont have had this problem. So please get all your documents intact so as to aid
your case tomorrow in case there is any dispute on your land.
