Tinubu’s Estate: Trustees Retain Lagoon Park Global Resources As Attorney

The controversy over the rights to the Power of Attorney over the estate of the late madam Efunroye Tinubu was laid to rest at the weekend as trustees of the estate endorsed the appointment of Lagoon Park Global Resources Limited as the family’s current and authentic attorney.

The Board of Trustees made up of its Chairman, Alhaji Adio Kassim Lumosa, Vice Chairman, Chief G O Fasetire, the Secretary, Mr. Temilola Adesanya and the Treasurer, Chief Shafiu Kassim Lumosa made this clarification at a press conference held at Abeokuta, Ogun state.

The trustees alleged that the former attorney acted improperly, and was no longer working in the best interest of the family.

They disclosed that since 1955, the courts have been appointing members of trustees for the estate of late Madam Efunroye Tinubu adding that the current trustees were appointed in 2002 by an high court of Lagos state Ikeja Judicial Division.

The trustees added that the former attorney, Adamakin Investment and Works Limited, whose Director is Akinfolabi Akindele was appointed in August 2012 but his appointment was revoked in April 2017 over alleged fraud and refusal to render an account of stewardship to the family.

They lamented that despite the revocation, Adamakin Investment and its Director, Akinfolabi Akindele kept on parading themselves as the attorney.

Consequently, the family states ‘’Adamakin investment and Works Limited and its director Akinfolabi Akindele remain revoked as attorney and shall never be reinstated as an attorney to the estate of Late Madam Efunroye Tinubu’’.
