REJOINDER ON THE JUDGMENT OF COURT 25 NYANYA HIGH COURT OF FCT DELIVERED BY HIS LORDSHIP JUSTICE E. OKPE ORDER ON 26th DAY OF JUNE 2024

We want to guide the general public and our numerous Clients that we the Defei in the above mentioned Judgment that both “Stay of Execution” and “Notice of Appeal” Unit has been entered to challenge this very unmerited Judgment of the Lower Court in favour of the Claimant – Adebayo Opabiyi which was Characterised with technicality in law and lack of fair hearing in line with Section 36 (1) of the 1999 Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria against the Defendant – Valington Homes and Properties Ltd.

Based on the above facts, Valington Homes and Properties Ltd, hereby urge the general public to disregard the the said Court’s Judgment and its award by ordering the Deto pay a fine of N10 million for trespassing on a plot of land allocated to Adebayo Opabiyi by the FCT authorities, in addition to N500,000 in legal costs and it reads…

We as the Defendant have filed an Appeal before the Appeal Court Abuja challenging the Lower Court’s judgment. We have the confidence that the Appellate Court will review the case and rule in our favour on the following grounds of law.

1. The FCT High Court ruled that the plaintiff had a Land Allocation document on the said land in contention dated January 2001 while that of Valington Homes was issued by the FCT dating March 2001 and for that reason the Plaintiff was the owner of the land in contention without verifying whether the Plaintiff paper was genuine.

2. The documents of the Plaintiff doesn’t have TDP and Survey Plan approved by FCDA while that of Valington Homes has the TDP and Survey Plan approval from the FCDA this in essence shows that the Plaintiff’s document is not genuine.

We appreciate the concern of all our Clients and friends who have called us to find out about the true situation of things and we are assuring them of our efforts to rectify the situation through the legal process.

We remain committed to resolving this matter and ensuring that our actions align with the law and respect for property rights.
