Rough days ahead for land grabbers as Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, says his government is set to reconstitute the Private Property Protection (PPP) Committee to deal with cases of encroachment and land grabbing in the state.

Obaseki, whose administration amended the Private Property Protection Law 2017, told journalists in Benin City, the Edo State capital, that the state has set up a special court to prosecute offenders, as part of efforts to curb the criminal activities of land grabbers and property speculators.

According to the governor, “We are committed to ending land grabbing in Edo State and will next week inaugurate the Committee for the Protection of Private Property (PPP).”

Recall that the governor had, on July 27, 2021, assented to the bill repealing the Edo State Private Property Protection Law 2017 and re-enacting the Edo State Private Property Protection Law 2021.

While assenting to the bill, Obaseki stated that the law “affects law and order in the State. With this law, we are not only banning the Community Development Associations (CDAs) but also all sorts of splinter groups like Okaigele or people who have come up to forcefully take other people’s landed properties in their communities.” He said.
