The Answer to the above question can be deduced from this True Story and please read carefully so that you learn from this issue:   Short Story…   A friend of mine from my University days decided to buy a land at Aboru around the Iyana paja side of Lagos and they were selling the land to him for around N1.8Million or so. Now he had N1 Million in cash and was so desperate to get a land.   So he contacted an agent who introduced him to the Seller and the Baale of that area. They told him that…

Okun Ajah used to be one of my favourite areas in Lagos for Investors to buy lands because of its whispering palms and beautiful beach view.   It is surrounded by some upcoming estates, Abraham Adesanya estate and Lekki Scheme 2 as its illustrious neighbours but it has of late become a hot bed of loads of land scams of unbelievable proportions. The Omoniles there are shamelessly re-selling people’s lands without any fear or remorse.   If they see that you own a land there and you haven’t developed it within 1 month or more, they would immediately auction your…

ANSWER   To be honest this is a very tricky question but from my experience I would say NO. Because we live in a society where land fraud is very prevalent.

Continue to pester the agent or the seller why can’t he come over to…
