The family of late Iyalode Efunroye Tinubu has reaffirmed the appointment of Mr Afolabi Adamakin of Adamakin and Works Limited as the bonafide and sole agent given the Power of Attorney by the family over the Estate of the late Efunroye Tinubu.
The two branches of the family, the Lumosa and Sobowale, disclosed this at a joint meeting held at Lumosa’s Compound, Oke-Ido Gbagura Abeokuta.
The Secretary-General of Madam Efunroye Tinubu Estate, Rev. Adio Bakare, said the family unanimously denied the Power of Attorney allegedly given to some other people like Lagoon Park Global Resources, Mansfield Real Estate Company, Integrated Service Limited, Mr Onyebuchi Opara Ugo, Mr Timothy Ogbonna, Mr Taiwo Oyewunmi, Mr Akeem Osuolade (a.k.a) Olowobusobuso, Mr Temilola Dawud Adesanya and Mr Ibrahim Mojeed.
According to him, the family further condemns the signing by the trustee for Oloto Family that Alaka land does not belong to Madam Efunroye Tinubu family, adding that “it has come to our notice that some unscrupulous people have been circulating rumour around Lagos State and its environs that the Power of Attorney given to Adamakin and Works Limited has been revoked by the family. Those doing this are doing so in order to successfully carry out their dubious act.
“We are also stating categorically that the family does not and will never give Power of Attorney to any other person. Therefore, the Power of Attorney given to Adamakin and Works Limited by the Legal/Administrator of the Family Estate and Properties is still intact and unrevokable. We are appealing to the general public to please stay away from these people because they have no legal right to represent or operate in any capacity on behalf of Madam Efunroye Tinubu family.
“The family, then, jointly agreed that it is only Afolabi Adamakin of Adamakin and Works Limited’ that is the bonafide Attorney of the Family and the family has agreed on the inclusion of more people to be members of Trustees to make their work transparent.
“This is to also let the public know that those trying to sell or develop parts of the land behind the National Stadium/Alaka/Iponri are doing so at their own risk; whoever trying to engage in any transaction with any person(s), or group, or company mentioned are doing such at utmost risk,” the family stated.
