Tony Kabaka Adun, Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, has gotten judgement in his favor as the Benin High Court has ordered that the Edo State Government and its agents should restrain from demolishing a hotel belonging to the chieftain.
The restraining order by Justice D.I Okungbowa was sequel to a seven days notice which was issued against Adun by the Ministry of Urban Planning for the relocation of the hospitality sited at Ugbor within the capital, alleging that it was built on government property.
Adun had filed a suit with number B/151/05/2019 praying an injunction to restrain the move if the ministry to demolish his hotel.
According to him, he acquired the land with proof of a certificate of occupancy, court’s injunction and was duly registered.
The Guardian, quoting Adun said;
“You see, this is my deed of transfer for the property. This is the Oba’s approval. This is the signature of the Surveyor-General of the state.
“You can see the youths from all parts of the state here in solidarity and the governor, even though I may have wronged him anyway through politics or freedom of speech, should please have mercy.”
