Two abandoned buildings in Lagos were sold in 2001 not 2021 according to NDLEA
In response to the misunderstanding surrounding the sale of two confiscated buildings in Lagos, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has taken action.
The homes are a five-bedroom duplex on Amadasun Street in Ikoyi and a four-bedroom cottage on Adeniyi Jones in Ikeja.
Babatunde Fashola, the Minister of Works and Housing, had complained that the houses were being sold for too little money.
Following the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, Fashola said.
The official claimed that, given the worth of the properties in 2001, the buyer should have paid N18 million for the bungalow and N21 million for the duplex.
The buildings were incorrectly reported as having been sold in 2021 by several platforms, according to NDLEA Media Director Femi Babafemi.
The spokesperson claimed that calls from worried members of the public to clarify the confusion in the sale year had been received.
In order to be clear, he said, “NDLEA did not auction any land in 2021 or 2022.
