The Chief Executive Officer of Medaville Limited, Ademola Akin-Benson has accused the Deji of Akure, Oba Aladelusi Aladetoyinbo of disrupting the ongoing Building construction at Federal Housing Estate, Alagbaka.

Over time, the Igbatoro road axis of Akure has witnessed an upsurge in the number of housing estates built by either the federal government or private developers.

But the construction of Medaville Estate has pitched the company against the Deji of Akure, Oba Aladelusi Aladetoyinbo over the ownership of a portion of the land which resulted in litigation.

According to a paper presented by the counsel to Medaville building construction, the court granted the company’s prayer to continue with the project while the case continues.

And now, the company through its Chief executive director, Ademola Akin-Benson has raised an alarm that the Deji has violated a subsisting court order by allegedly sponsoring thugs to disrupt activities on the site on daily basis.

He said the Monarch who is also the chairman of, the council of Ova in Ondo State is demanding some portion of the land which according to him does not fall within his jurisdiction.

He said, two motorbikes, laptops, and working tools among other items were carted away during the week when the people visited the site lamenting while they visit the site daily to foment trouble.

Counsel to the Company, Femi Emmanuel Emodamori while responding to what efforts the company has made since the inception of the case, showed pieces of evidence of carrying Police authority and the state government along with other letters to different concerned quarters.

Reacting, Deji of Akure, Oba Aladetoyinbo who spoke through his press secretary Michael Adeyeye denied the allegation saying, the construction company is going beyond the allotted space and will not fold his arms and allow abnormality to take place in his community.

He claimed that there is a 3 hectares portion meant for a shrine situated in the area by the forefathers of the land which the federal government is aware of.

As at the time of filing this report some unarmed youths were sighted on the land who claimed they were sent by the traditional ruler.
