Ambode,Tejuosho’s Feud Gets Messier As Police Eject Children With Teargas, Begin Demolition of House Allegedly On Gov’s Order

The feud between Lagos state governor Akinwunmi Ambode and Funmi Tejuosho, the chairman house on finance took a new twist on Monday as police acting on the alleged order of the governor invaded Hon. Funmi Tejuoso’s House, breaking down doors at the house of the lawmaker and assaulting the children and others while they destroy her properties.

In order to forcefully eject the occupants, the invading policemen, allegedly acting pursuant to the orders of Governor Ambode, used teargas on the children who are staying in the house despite the seal up by the police carried out on Friday 3rd of November, 2017. They also disconnected electricity supply to the house.

The house, 3A, Sasegbon Street, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos according to sources was acquired by Honourable Funmi Tejuoso during the tenure of Governor Fashola and was fully paid for in the name of a company belonging to Tejuoso. But last week Friday, police came to seal the house up claiming it was government’s property.

An eye witness speaking on anonymously said “Coming back today now, they have fraudulently put a signpost in front of the house calling it Deputy Speaker’s Residence. Whereas no other deputy speaker had ever lived in the house before, it was her residence sold to her by the previous government under the monetization programme.”

One of the molested victims explained further that “As a matter of fact, contrary to the lies being peddled by the Lagos State government, the two previous Deputy Speakers before Honourable Funmilayo Tejuoso were Farouk Oshodi and Toun Adediran  whilst the two after Tejuoso were Bola Badmus and Kolawole Taiwo. None of them ever lived in the premises No. 3A, Sasegbon Street. A former Permanent Secretary  for Budget, Mrs. Dawodu handed the place over to Tejuoso and it was only a colonial building with wooden deck that was there then. The couple, Honourable Funmilayo Tejuoso and her husband, Kayode Tejuoso, built what is there presently.”

Bad blood between governor Ambode and Honourable Funmi Tejuosho according to sources is not unconnected to perceived loyalty of Funmi Tejuosho to former governor and minister for power, works and housing, Babatunde Fashola. While the said house was sold to Tejuosho during the tenure of Fashola with all documents provided, Ambode was said to have vowed to take the house at all cost. Funmi Tejuosho’s activities as the chairman house committee on finance has also irked the anger of the governor.

While the government keeps mute about the development, Funmi Tejuosho who is in the United States has also not made any statement .
