Paul Adefarasin and his church, House on the Rock have been served with an N800 million lawsuit by a certain Gerald Chukwueke and four others through their lawyer, Moyo Onigbanjo (SAN).
The suit, which will be heard on Thursday, April 7, will be presided over by Justice Adebisi Akinlade of the Lagos State High Court sitting in Igbosere.
According to Leadership, the plaintiffs are looking to claim damages against the clergyman and his church for allegedly trespassing on their land in Lekki, Lagos.

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.
