An Ogudu Magistrate Court has sentenced a land grabber, popularly known as Omo Onile, Lekan Adetona, to a three months imprisonment for allegedly beating up a site worker for refusing to give him money.
Adetona, 37, connived with others to beat up the site worker after refusing to give them money while in the site.
The incident which happened at a building site on Anobi Street, Alapere, Ketu, was reported by the complainant, a site worker, on the same day.
The complainant, a welder, had on that day went to meet some of his friends at a site on Anobi Street, where they were to carry out some construction work.
On getting there, he didn’t meet them and as he turned to return to his shop, a group of three young men, led by the accused, attacked him.
They beat him to a pulp as they demanded money from him, thinking he was the site engineer.
Adetona and his Omo Onile boys were accused by the complainant of going about terrorising people over their property and trying to claim money for ridiculous reasons.
The convict was unlucky and was arrested by the police with the help of people around, who knew his whereabouts.
