Firm drags Air Force to court over contentious property
A firm, BCL Limited, has dragged the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) before a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos for alleged continuous occupation of a landed property belonging to the firm.
The firm’s counsel, Abubakar Sheidu had in a suit No: HC/LC/CS/1769/14, alleged that the Air Force forcefully ejected its employees and stopped its agents from re-development of the property which it had commenced work on. The property is said to be situated at No. 13B Reeves Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.
But in its statement of defence, the Nigerian Air Force through its officers, Flying Officer Oluwaseun Afolabi and B. R. Ashiru asked the court to dismiss the case in its entirety.
The presiding judge, Justice Mohammed Idris, adjourned the case till October 24, 2016.
