Over thirty buildings including residential homes and office apartments around Masha and Kilo in Surulere area of Lagos state have been marked for possession following a judgement by the Ikeja High Court.

A popular Business Centre in Masha was also cordoned off as occupants were prevented from accessing their apartments.
The affected owners of the buildings marked have sent an appeal to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu to wade into the matter.

Reacting on the matter, the Counsel to Oba Adams said the case was instituted in1968 and ruling given in 1975 by Hon justice M.A Lawal of Ikeja High Court.
According to him, the occupants of the affected marked buildings were doing so illegally since the pronouncement of the court.
He said all legal documents on the possession are before the Deputy Sherrif at Ikeja High Court.
