Residents now fetch water with buckets while vehicles are vandalised due to bad security

Residents of the popular 1004 Estate, Victoria Island, Lagos, have called for the return of the maintenance of the Estate to its former managers, due to what they described as ‘mismanagement of the Estate’ by Home Owners and Residents Association (HORA).

The residents of the Estate made the call for return of the estate to its former managers, in notice pasted across the Estate.

In the notice captioned “Enough of Mismanagement of 1004 Estate by Failed 1004 HORA’, the residents under the aegis of 1004 Residents Forum, stated that the situation of the Estate had deteriorated.

Parts of the complaint of the postal read: “we say enough to this unprecedented levels of mismanagement. When you illegally forced out the original managers, you made us believe things would be better instead, things have gone from good to worse.

Coloured water provided in the estate for the past four months

“We say no to bad quality water. You have destroyed new functioning water plant in just one year. We say no to over 50 power shortage in a day by 1G4 Power Limited. We say no to broken down lift due to mismanagement, and the dirty surrounding.

“We say no to excessive charge for electricity and the charges of 1G4 Power Limited (owned by one of the HORA executives). We say no to high cost of service charge when the quality of services provided have nose dived. We say no to horrible security services with the vandalization of our vehicles and home burglaries. We say no to new facility managers, Ora Egbunnike, Clay and Harrofield and others. No to your many committee’s who all lacked large scale Estate management experience.

The postal also reads; ” we say no to water poisoning of our families and to electrical fires; We say no to HORA. You are too inhumane and caused us much suffering without a care. Please, return our Estate to the State where everythings worked. Give the Estate back to original legal managers. You have no legitimacy. We are tired of your excuses and explanations.

“The suffering residents in 1004 flats in our forum are more that 40 members that attended your meeting. HORA must go. We have never recognised HORA on our Estate.”

It will be recalled that five HORA’s executives, which includes Bosun Sosanya, Tayo Soetan, Adebayo Ademiluyi, Friday Alika and Abubakar Audu, were recently arraigned before an Igbosere Chief Magistate’s Court, on charges bordering on conspiracy, felony, and and forciful entry into the office of 1004 Estate Limited.

They were alleged to have committed the said offences on December 5, 2015
