An Ondo State High Court sitting in Akure, the Ondo State capital, has sentenced two persons, Stella Akinbobola and Adewumi Matthew Opeyemi to seven years and five years imprisonment respectively.

They were convicted of forceful entry and conspiracy to commit a felony.

The police dragged the convicts to court for unlawful invasion of land in Ondo town.

In his judgement, the trial judge, Justice Williams Rotimi Olamide convicted them and discharged and acquitted the third defendant, Ojopaun Tope.

Justice Olamide gave Stella the option of a fine to the tune of N250,000 on each of the charges, while Matthew was given an option of a fine of N100,000 on counts one to four.

Akinbobola and Opeyemi were accused of forgery and altering a warrant of possession with the used the use of corrective fluid after the same had been signed by Hon. Justice Bode Adegbehingbe.

The suspects were also accused of inserting Claimant in the column where the first defendant was originally written and inserting the first defendant where the Claimant was originally written.

Speaking with newsmen, a former member of the National Assembly. Joseph Akinlaja who supported nominal complaints in the case, said he decided to take up the matter because the two defendants forcibly took over the lands that belong to the people.

Akinlaja, said
Quote
“the judgement is a clear indication that the judiciary is the hope of the common man.

“The people reported to me, most especially those who don’t have money, those who don’t have money to survey their family land.

“Poor people don’t have money to survey their lands, but land grabbers have money to spend.

” They spend millions to survey the land and make a presentation that looks real to court and it is possible they win.

‘But in this case, justice was delivered and dedicated to the poor people that owned their land in Ondo town

“The case that brought us to this place is a case of somebody who said her father has 6,700 hectares of land in Ondo and what is the size of Ondo itself and she began to bulldoze people’s land and oppressed them and even planned to shoot me.

“Police came from SWAT on trump charges against him for pursuing the case. I am happy justice is served.”

Speaking after the judgement, the prosecuting counsel, Tolu Abisagbo, said the case was a long journey to justice,

Abisagbo, however, said that the ” accused persons were, however, given an option of fine.
