Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo has revoked the statutory right of occupancy granted to a former Governor of Delta, James Ibori, in respect of a property on plot 103A Aiguobasimwin Crescent, old GRA, Benin City.
But Ibori, a former governor of Delta State, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) through text message that “I am aware. He told me three months ago.”
Obaseki said he revoked the property in exercise of the power conferred on him by Sections (28) 1 and 38 of the Land Use Decree of 1978 and by virtue of all other laws enabling him on that behalf.
Obaseki, who signed the revocation order, said the property contained an area of approximately 1985.950 square meters.
No further reason was given for the revocation.
