Several elderly women in Ipetoro/Lowa in Sagamu Local Government Area of Ogun State on Wednesday stripped themselves half-naked to prevent land grabbers from usurping landed properties in the area.

The activities of land grabbers have become rampant in the last few months in Ipetoro/Lowa, and many have lost their lives in the ensuing violence.
On Thursday, the land grabbers were at it again when they stormed the area armed with guns, cutlasses and various dangerous weapons.

In the free-for-all fight no fewer than 10 persons were injured while three others have been declared missing.

The development, it was gathered, gave rise to protests by elderly women in the community, who reportedly stripped themselves naked in the presence of the suspected land grabbers.
They were said to have immediately suspended action on sighting the naked women.

Those injured include one Muri Ajaka, women and children who ran into the suspected land grabbers, while scampering for safety. They have reportedly been taken to hospitals in the area.

Residents claimed that they had combed everywhere in search of the missing residents and had reported the attack at Ogijo Police Division.
