The invasion of public offices in the last days of #EndSARS protests has led to the burning and loss of documents which include the lawsuit filed against Bola Tinubu, former Lagos state Governor and Alpha Beta consulting firm.
Tade Ipadeola, legal counsel to Dapo Apara who was a former Managing Director at Alpha Beta made the disclosure to newsmen.
It would be recalled that Apara dragged Tinubu and Tunde Doherty to Igbosere High court over financial impropriety of Lagos state funds.
Dapo Apara disclosed he conceived Alpha Beta consulting firm in 2002 to manage and reconcile Lagos state taxes.
According to him, Tinubu who was then Lagos governor agreed to the idea, and claimed a whopping 70 percent shares of the company through cronies.
He said Tinubu instructed that his 70 percent shares should be in the names of his cousin Adegboyega Oyetola who is the incumbent Governor of Osun state and one Olumide Ogunmola.
Unfortunately, Igbosere magistrate court was among government offices set ablaze shortly after #EndSARS protests got hijacked by hoodlums.
Apara’s legal counsel, Ipadeola while speaking to The PUNCH disclosed the court papers indicting Bola Tinubu and Alpha Beta were among documents burnt in the vandalism.
The Lawyer said “Everything in Igbosere high court got burnt including the registrar’s copy of our application,” the lawyer said.
“In fact, the whole building was burnt to ashes. So, we will have to file again. The registry has been moved to Ikeja.
“We may have to file the case afresh at the Ikeja high court but we have not yet been instructed to do so.”
