Lagos Chief Judge Receives A Widow’s Plea Regarding Property Demolition



Lagos Chief Judge Receives A Widow's Plea Regarding Property Demolition

A widow and mother of five, Mrs Loveth Ndelewkute has petitioned the Chief Judge of Lagos State, Justice Kazeem Olanrewaju Alogba, and the National Judicial Council (NJC) in Abuja, asking for transfer of her case challenging the unlawful demolition of her family properties to another judge.

Ndelewkute is asking that the case be reassigned to another judge as she could no longer guarantee the impartiality of the trial judge to handle the matter.

A copy of the petition dated January 12, 2024 reads in part: “I am the widow of the named defendant – MR. EDMUND NDELEKWUTE now deceased in suit No. ID/1081/12.

“A mother of five (5) children living at No. 2, New Market Road, Ayobo, Lagos before my family property was completely demolished acting on the undefended court judgment delivered on 15th November, 2015 which has been challenged via application filed on my behalf to set aside the purported judgment still pending and with motion moved and with court ruling scheduled to be delivered on 14th of December, 2023.
