Popular pastor, Paul Adefarasin of the House on the Rock church have been slammed with an N800m lawsuit by a Lagos businessman, identified as Gerald Chukwueke and four others through their lawyer, Moyo Onigbanjo (SAN) for trespassing.
The Pastor was dragged before a Lagos State High Court sitting in Igbosere presided over by Justice Adebisi Akinlade.
Reports say in the suit, which will be heard on Thursday, April 7, the plaintiffs are looking to claim damages against the clergyman and his church for allegedly trespassing on their land in Lekki, Lagos.
The plaintiffs, Martha Chukwueke, Germaine Logistics Limited, Germaine Auto Centre Limited as well as Chukwueke and Chinelo Chukwueke are also filing for the defendants to pay N180 million as legal fees for their counsel.
At the last sitting of the court, Justice Akinlade had granted an interim injunction restraining the defendants, including the incorporated trustees of the Rock Foundation, the registrar of titles, Lagos State Land Registry and the attorney general of Lagos State from demolishing or removing any structure from the land located at Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.
