*Families Reject New Trustees for Iyalode Tinubu Estate
The families of Lumosa and Sobowale have refuted a recent publication announcing the appointment of trustees and a surveyor to the estate of late Madam Iyalode Efunroye Tinubu.
In a statement, the families denied knowledge of any new appointment of trustees since 2002. They stated that the purported appointment of Maptech GIS Limited and Surveyor Adejumo Olusegun Pius is fraudulent aimed at hijacking the estate’s management.
The families affirmed that the power of attorney granted to Adamakin Investment and Works Ltd is still valid, as their assigned tasks remain unfinished. Hence, any termination notice is false.
Alh Shafiu Kasim Lumosa, representing the families, declared all information in the said publication as incorrect and evil attempts to impose control over the estate. He disclosed that the self-imposed trustees named in the publication are already subjects of existing litigation.
The full statement is read below.
RE THE MANAGEMENT ESTATE OF LATE MADAM IYALODE EFUNROYE TINUBU
NOTICE OF DISCLAIMER OF APPOINTMENT OF TRUSTEES OF THE ESTATE AND MAPTECH AND GIS LIMITED AS SURVEYOR TO THE estate
- To put the record straight, there has not been new appointment of trustees to the estate since 2002. Thus, the purported appointment of the Maptech GIS Ltd in the said publication is without the knowledge of the Families, its principal members and the Legal trustees of the Estate. It is aimed at perpetrating fraud and to short change the families and other beneficiaries of the estate by using the Maptech GIS limited and its promoter Surveyor Adejumo Olusegun Pius as partner to achieve such inordinate and selfish desires
- The appointment of Messrs. Adamakin Investment and Works Ltd as attorney still subsist and has not been terminated and could not have been terminated because all the task assigned in the power donated by the legal trustees has not been fully concluded or done by either parties. The purported termination is therefore a ruse and the general public is hereby advised to disregard any of such appointment and be guided
- All the information in the publication is not correct and are geared towards achieving evil desires of the authors whose many attempts at hijacking the management of the estate to themselves alone has been thwarted and the spurious public notice in Guardian Newspaper of 3 January 2024 is one of such plan of force imposition which will be resisted. in fact, Alh Sufia Kasim Lumosa and Akinwemimo Kassim Sobowale self -imposition as the trustee of the estate is already subject matter of litigation and wonder how or why they could derive their power of appointment of agent or any person to the estate.
- The general Public is hereby advised disregard the content of the Publication and their authors in entirety as they are mischievous, bogus false and misleading
