Estate agent dupes 250 tenants of N65m in Lagos State Government.

Estate agent dupes  250 tenants of N65m in Lagos State Government.

The Lagos State Government raised an alarm over an estate agent making away with the sum of N65 million from 250 house seekers in Lagos, vowing to explore legal option to protect residents.  

Reacting, the Lagos State Commissioner for Housing, Moruf Akinderu-Fatai, said that government would explore legal options to ensure dubious real estate swindlers were punished.  

Akinderu-Fatai, while receiving some victims of accommodation scam from Alapere in Ketu area of the state, said:

“The state government has declared a war against fraudulent practitioners in the real estate sector. Government is determined to make Lagos a no go area for unscrupulous individuals who prey on Lagosians under the guise of real estate business.’’ 

He assured the victims who lost N65 million to a swindler who collected money from over 250 prospective tenants that the fraudulent developer would be prosecuted.  He said that the state government had instituted legal actions against the said developer on behalf of the victims. Akinderu-Fatai advised Lagos residents to report suspected dubious estate agents and developers to the office of Lagos State Real Estate Transaction Department (LASRETRAD) at Block 7 at the Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja.

“I want to assure you that the state government, under the leadership of Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, is very responsive. It will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the culprits are brought to book,” the commissioner said in a statement by Mrs Adeola Salako, Director, Public Affairs in the ministry.

He also advised victims to remain calm and be law abiding since the matter was already in court.  Also, Mr Wasiu Akewusola, the Permanent Secretary, state Ministry of Housing, urged accommodation seekers to always transact business with the estate agents and developers registered with LASRETRAD.
