The Managing Director of the Lekki Free Zone Ltd, Mr. Tajudeen Disu is among persons killed as Ibeju-Lekki villagers and mobile police officers clashed in  Okunraiye community near Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, this morning.

The villagers said they were on a peaceful protest against "forceful takeover" of their land by the Lagos state government on behalf of Africa’s richest industrialist, Aliko  Dangote and the Lekki Free Zone Ltd when policemen  attacked them reportedly killing two of the protesters instantly.

The villagers said the killing resulted in a crisis.

A local chief in the area told Saharareporters that the Lekki Free Zone Ltd called in anti-riot policemen of "Mopol 49" to kill the protesters because they had insisted too long ago against forceful acquisition of the community land by the Lekki Free Zone Ltd for the construction of a large petrochemical  refinery owned by Mr. Dangote. The chief said the Mopol were led and supervised to the protest scene by Managing Director of the Lekki Free Zone Ltd, Mr. Disu.

But Mr. Disu was also among those downed as the police officers guarding him and protesters clashed, according to the local chief. One of the police officers was also feared dead. The community has been taken over by soldiers reinforced to the community as the crisis escalated.

The village is currently being raided by Nigerian troops sent to the community as a result of the crisis. Many villagers have vacated the village out of fear.
Habib Aruna, who is the Chief Press Secretary to Governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode told Saharareporters that the governor had just addressed the media over the crisis. He confirmed that Mr. Disu died in the fracas stating that his body has been deposited at the Lagos State University Hospital for a post-mortem.

See now he is dead. U want to forcefully collect pple land. Why Dangote no go build dat same petrolchemical watever in d north. There are many unemply youths in d north and if he build such there, there will be jobs for those who are idle so they will not think of joining boko. They have forcefully taken almost all those pple lands and I like wat they did by defending themselves. Police will not help them cus they don't have money to bribe d police. It is in dat ibeju lekki dat Tunubu has one of d largest land called Tunubu shopping mall still under construction. Ver massive land. For those of u who travel thru there to epe or who go to lakapine tropicana close to eleko beach will kn wat am talking abt. May GOD help those poor pple there from d hands of dis rich thieves there.

How can you forcefully take over someone's land without settlement, Are they not humans like you, dangote? It is quite unfortunate that People are now paying the ultimate price with their lives.
