  • This type of things occur and mostly in the eastern side when an uncle will want to take possession of not only his brothers property but also his wife.The best thing is just to hope and pray for Gods intervention because fights for land usually end up in at someone being dead.

  • Why should  your father's brother stop you from getting assess to your own father's property. I think he don't know the laws of human Rights. You need to involve Human right into this matter

  • So sorry for your loss, concerning your case I believe you should involve the law as far you have all the necessary documents to proof that the land belongs to your father. You can also involve the human right or the CLO the make things easier but ensure that you have proof of ownership. May God Almighty be with you and give you the fortitude to bear the loss.

  • In my own opinion, I think that every man is expected to hustle and earn his own property, if you are futunate to have a father who left one or two things for you and in the process of taking it there is conflect which forecast danger.  Just let it go and focus your own future.

  • You should meet your father's lawyer if you know him to ask if your father left any will. If not, then it would be hard to repossess the lands grabbed by your uncles. But as a son, you should be the legal heir so I'd just advice you to sue him to court and have a strong lawyer and witnesses against him.

  • Brother from my own part I will say u should leave them because village people are mine so to be on a save side let God do his work he will surly surrender what belongs to you

  • Sorry for the loss, 

    I think you can involve the elders in the community they should be able to speak to him and convince him, and if it is only your uncle then you can ask help from elderly  families also, 

    And don't forget to pray about it

  • Sir if he still won't relinquish the land after the intervention of the elders don't go to any human rights. As long all Humans are concerned you are capable of achieving way more than that plot of land

  • My brother you can claim it and be your own back but with fasting and prayer, and you have to raise this matter to court of law. Because if you claimed it without prayer such person may trying to kill you and you don't know may it's him caused your father's death because of property.

  • Bro I will advice you to let him take what ever thing he want to take from your father, because you never can tell if he's the one that take away your father life because of his properties, so he may want to do the same if you go ahead to drag the land with him, so is better you let him take it and pray to God to give you your own..

  • You're a man not a girl my up and take charge of your inheritance...because if you allow yourself to be mesmerized by this uncle of yours then your father will be so disappointed wherever he is.

  • I suggest you leave it for him and go make your money you shouldn't drag any of this things because it's of no use they are the things of the world ,uncle's are very bad and can do and undo 

    - okereke Chinaemerem - 2019-09-26 09:37:33 Quote

  • My dear you need to let him be for now and be focused on your future because I know if you should start draging the land with him something bad may happen to you or him which may lead to death or destruction and you should also know that this world is vanity upon vanity. Your future is bright and you don't even know what that future has in store for you, you may even be giving people land for free. So allow him because it will soon be over please.

  • This type of case looks like a scourge to the Eastern Nigerians and has continously been repeating on counntless occasions. My dear, it is painful to behold the trauma you are going through right now. Be it as it may, if you have sibblings, go with them to confront him personally and on a friendly manner. Hear from him and them here also from the side of the elders. If he insist on taking the land that rightfully belong to your late father after having a fair judgment by the community, take it up to court.

  • leave the fight for God to fight for you if you don't wanna die young, people like that are desperate and can stop at nothing to waste you, get on with your life and wait till God judgement on him.

  • Sorry for the loss bro, 

    But please just leave that man for God, focus on your own future, don't depend on your father's property to live, if you want to try drag anything with him, I bet you my brother,  he is ready to kill. So please forget about it

  • Hmm. This is something serious , this kind of a thing usually happen among Igbo people . And I think that somebody that doesn't want you to inherit your father's properties means that he is actually the one that killed your father . He won't even allow you to mourn your father , hmm this is extremely wickedness . You just have to keep on trying struggle for your properties zits your right

  • This thing mostly occur in the western part of Nigeria in which the junior brother will tell you him and your father both suffered for the properties and so therefore you should not have any share so the best thing is to inform your village elders and at worst call on human right activist for lawful intervention.

  • Have you asked him the reason why he doesn't want you to have your father's own portion of the land?. Maybe there's something he is not saying because since the elders have already talked to him and he still refuses , there is something between your father and him.  Even though you want to involve the human rights officials , be very careful , you can't predict a persons next step

    - Osikha Cynthia - 2019-09-26 14:04:43 Quote

  • Since you have reported the matter to the village elders and he still refuse to let you have your entitlement. Go and report the matter with the police, he will be arrested and he will explain why he don't want you to inherit your father's properties. If he still prove stubborn with the police, let the matter be taken to the court and he will at the end lose and be disgraced.

    - Paul Nwaso - 2019-09-26 14:13:50 Quote

  • Confront him to tell you the reason why he is holding your inheritance. Possibly, your father had pledged the land to him and collected money. And if it is true, let him provide proofs. If the proofs are there, pay him back what your father had borrowed from him and reclaim your inheritance.

    - Paul Nwaso - 2019-09-26 14:20:41 Quote

  • My dear its  not an easy case,  but will advice you to leave the lands for now,  report the matter to the police but reserve the case

    He might even be behind your fathers dead and will do the  same to you if you drag the land with him

    Pray for  God intervention, and his help  allow God to fight they battle for you, because the battle is not going to be a physical battle but spiritual one

    - Patrick Juliet - 2019-09-26 15:01:55 Quote

  • I suggest you should let him have them because ones uncles starts dragging your inheritance with you, they already got whatever it takes and will do everything even it means taking your life s please, for the sake of your loved ones, stay away from those things.

  • The issue of land and money in this western world is a thing of concern. My brother,  I want you to be patient about this matter. Go and meet him and beg him. If he he doesn't accept, go and meet elders or someone he respects a lot and pray along. 

    Don't fight him o because you may lose your life. Who knows maybe he was the one that killed your late father just to inherit his properties. So you need to be careful.

    - Adejube Olaoluwa - 2019-09-26 15:22:11 Quote

  • Brother I'll advise you to get over it...

    Because in the process you might lose your life, you're still a youth and you can't fight it all alone, your uncle can invoke evil spirit on you and turn you to something else, 

    Its better to fight for your life rather than fighting on a piece of land owned by your late dad. .

    Wise up and wake from your slumber ,leave the land for him and move on with your future

  • If i happen to be you i will forget about the land. This land issue is everywhere and people die because they feel it will be some how to just let your land go like that, and in the process they begin to loss things that are morethan the land.

    I will advice, go to God in prayer over the issue and allow Him to fight for you. If God still want you to have the land He Himself know what to do. 

    - CHRISTIAN IFEANYICHUKWU - 2019-09-26 16:11:05 Quote

  • Hmmmm this issue is complicated, because your uncle himself know hes not doing the right thing, involving human right is okay but thats physical combat, what if he go extra length spiritually, just let go of it and assume your father never left anything, pray to God for help and hustel too. 

    - Afolami Olalekan - 2019-09-26 18:03:49 Quote

  • Bro you still young and youthful forget about the land and focus on your life and how to get your properties and not to involve with fight one develish uncle. Who knows if he is the one behind your father's death. If you invite the human right and you eventually win the case what about the diabolical aspect? Just forget that land you work on yourself to be greater than his expectations 

    - Eklou Gbenga Tunde - 2019-09-26 18:06:43 Quote

  • Anything that has to do with dispute on land and property is a very deadly thing because the person in loggerheads with you is ready to use is last penny to make sure that it belongs to him. So my dear since you've involve the human right better for you, but if you know your mind can't carry the case I will suggest you back out.

    - Okoro chidiebere Henry - 2019-09-26 18:44:16 Quote

  • I’ll say you just let it go. Issues over land are deadly. You never know how bad the intentions your uncle has for you are. Just move on and establish yourself. You’ll probably have more than that soon enough

  • This is a small case my dear. Go to ministry of justice in your Local government and complain to them. You can still go human rights and your mother if still alive is a weapon to use. Let her go women affair office or WARCO office to complain

  • see, dont drag too much with him for your own safety purpose

    any action that you want to take, make sure it is in accordance with the law and involve a lawyer and the court. Thia will really help you through the matter because the lawyers have seen and solved similar cases. i wish you the best bro

    - Malachi Olaoluwa - 2019-09-26 19:12:20 Quote

  • The easiest solution is to just hire a good lawyer and sue the uncle to court. Especially if your tradition is on your side or if your father has a will. This sort of behavior has got to stop in this country. It makes no sense that such a rift can happen among family members. If a family can't stay in peace, how can 36 states live in peace.

  • Unfortunately  this is an ugly reality of things in the part of the world. Yes it's unfair but it's the way some selfish people are. I'll advice you to pray I mean lots of prayers, secondly I think you and your family need to hire a lawyer,a prominent one at that. I wish you best of luck.

  • You should not try to argue it with mimosas much since he's your uncle. Tell him you've heard and he'll fell so guilty he'll probably call you back. If I doesn't work then hope you have legal papers supporting that your father owns the land, sue for your share if you want and also ask God for help. 

    - Mofolu Ayo - 2019-09-26 20:10:00 Quote

  • I will advise you to be prayerful and also try to inform police because you can not do it alone for them not to harm you .and the reason hey I told you to be prayerful someone lime that will not stand ordinary  . So you will be the one to be wise and act wise on this aspect .

    - David Solomon - 2019-09-26 21:13:06 Quote

  • The best advice I will give you in this case is to pray and continue your life without having to depend on your father's property my brother. If it's in God's plan for the piece of land to be yours, God will send it to you no matter what the situation tends to look like. It's better this way rather than fall into the devil's trap and be gone forever by friend.

  • In my opinion,

    Let go and work out your wealth in your name, the whole earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof

    With or without the land your destiny is not and should not be shortened

  • This is a common thing in Nigeria especially among the Igbo tribe. But I throught such thing no longer happen judging with how smart this present generation. If your uncle is too stubborn, then report him to d human right

  • Don't risk your life for a token of land portion cos you still have better days ahead for yourself and can still earn to buy yourself a land.... To fight for your right cos the land is your right I will advise you involve law maybe sue him to court to regain your possesion 

    - Oretan Ayomipo Micheal - 2019-09-26 22:55:23 Quote

  • There's no big deal about this. Let him have it . He won't inherent earth.he will sooner or later die as well and he will be judge for his evil deed. All this things are needed here on earth or you find a loyal and field the case I believe you will surely win

    - Noah Hezekiah - 2019-09-26 23:10:35 Quote

  • Well you have to fight for your right since it's your father's property and while fighting for your right also be prayerful involve God to direct into the right part because most uncle doesn't fight for property they involve in using charm.

    - Abdulazeez Taibat - 2019-09-26 23:16:48 Quote

  • My advice for you is to work so you will have your own property because if you say you want to fight or involved the government he might end up killing you just play safe

    - Jimoh Abdul - 2019-09-26 23:28:18 Quote

  • Look, his your dad, so are u suppose to have right to his property, fight for your right but don't kill yourself on the process or let them kill you, if your fights are to no avil, leave it, and go hustle your own. 

    - Becky Charles - 2019-09-26 23:38:47 Quote

  • In as much as the human rights involvement will be really nice I will strongly advice against this because we live in dangerous times. Just try and settle this within the family and if you are not getting any positive outcome from that just leave the land for God to fight for you. There's no gain in losing your life over a land.

    - Ndukwe Ikechukwu - 2019-09-26 23:53:21 Quote

  • If you love your life and want to do good with the rest of your life, please stay away from the land or else your father brother will kill you, you may involved human right and win, but the later will not be palatable and you still end up living the land for him. God will give you better days ahead and you will buy lands.

  • This issue has becom very common in our society all those while,I would advice the man to first of all report it to the community elders if nothing is done then he should proceed to human right

  • this is similar to what happened to me and my bothers our Uncle did the same we reported him to our elders now the is ours but the issue there is am I going to make use of the land no I rather sell it for my safety I will tell you to back up with spiritual power before any action you don't know what killed your father

    - Nwaonye Kingsley - 2019-09-27 04:34:04 Quote

  • I'd advise you pray fervently about it, if the elders of the community have been involved, and nothing could be done,I advice you leave the land, and work hard to get yours. If it's God's plan to give you the land, you will definitely get it sooner or later, but don't rely on it.
