The Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba (Dr) Mohood Olalekan Ishola Balogun, has vowed to fight against any form of land grabbing in Ibadanland.
The Olubadan said such a battle could only be won in conjunction with practising surveyors in the state.
The monarch stated this when the executive members of the Nigeria Institution of Surveyors (NIS) paid him a courtesy call at his Alarere, New Ife Road, palace in Ibadan in commemoration of the 2022 Global Surveyors Day.
He said the palace was inundated with reports of land grabbers upon his ascendance to the throne and that a special committee was set up by the last Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Soliu Akanmu Adetunji, had been deployed to look into the matter.
The Olubadan used the occasion to challenge NIS to send representatives to partake in the activities of the committee, which he said would put to rest crimes and crises that arose from the activities of land speculators and grabbers.
