The death threats are from unknown persons.

A chief executive officer of a privately owned property management firm located in Orita-Iga/Isalu in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State, Mutairu Owoeye, on Monday raised alarm on threats to his life by suspected assassins.

Mr. Owoeye made this known during an interview with journalists on Monday. He explained that his sin was his presumed effrontery to comply with a court judgment permitting him to work on an acquired land.

The businessman, who denied forcefully gaining control of the land, insisted that his company did not move to the property until the court ruled in its favour. He lamented that since the company took over the land, he has been having sleepless nights following incessant death threats via telephone from unknown people.

He stated that the development forced him to make a report to the police, adding that his company has always worked within the ambit of law and would never deviate from that as he would not condone any act that could dent the reputable image he has built over the years.

“The faceless callers who claimed to be calling from Ota and Lagos always threaten to kill me if I don’t vacate the property,” Mr. Owoeye said. “I have briefed the Area Commander of Ota Police Area Command for appropriate action and always thought it wise to cry out to the public through the media.”
