Ogun State High Court, Ijebu-Ode division has ordered the state government to stop the demolition of a five-story building plaza belonging to Olufunke Daniel, the wife of former governor, of the state, Gbenga Daniel.

Gistmania had earlier reported that the officials of the state government, accompanied by armed policemen began the demolition of the building, named DATKEM plaza, located in the Ijebu-Ode area of the state around 3 a.m. on Sunday.

Clips and pictures showing destruction on the structure, valued at N1billion were circulated across social media platforms in the state, generating outrage and concerns among the residents and the political class.

But, Daniel’s wife dragged the state government, the state Planning and Development Permit Authority, and the Ogun state commissioner for Physical Planning; and Urban Development before the court, accusing Governor Dapo Abiodun of “executive recklessness”.

Daniel through his counsel, Adeyinka Kotoye (SAN) asked the court to stop the government and its agents from demolishing the plaza.

“I have perused the application and the
documents attached thereto. I am of the opinion

adjourned for hearing on 27″ September 2023”.
