The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, on Sunday urged the Governor State of Osun, Adegboyega Oyetola and House of Assembly Speaker Timothy Owoeye to enact a law that would recommend stringent punishment for anybody involved in land grabbing.
He noted that the spate of land grabbing should be legislatively addressed to protect heritage landed assets of the masses.
The monarch appealed to the government to act fast on land grabbing. “I appeal to Governor Oyetola to make a law that will recommend punishment for land grabbers. The reports of land grabbing in the state are disturbing and call for legislative and judicial attention from the government.”
