An Ikorodu high court in Lagos has ordered Olorunjuwon Ajenla, the surveyor-general of the state, to be committed to police custody for disobeying a court order.

M.A Savage, the presiding judge, gave the directive when Ajenla appeared before the court on Tuesday, following a bench warrant issued against him.

The court issued the bench warrant against the surveyor-general on November 17.

Savage held that the surveyor-general failed to obey a court order for his office to provide the court with a composite plan of a disputed land case before it.

He said that the surveyor-general was served an enrolment order by the court on December 15, 2013, and was also summoned to appear before the court, which he failed to do.

The judge said Ajenla’s non-appearance and disobedience had frustrated the land matter  between one Muhammed, K.A. Olutusin and others versus Sikiru Ogidi and others.

The court held that Ajenla should remain in the police custody pending a formal contempt charge.

The matter has been adjourned to November 27.
