“You Cannot Own Land In Nigeria.”

All lands in Nigeria, including your ancestral homes are vested on the 36 States Governors and the Federal Government of Nigeria. Hence, No person can own any land in Nigeria. At best, a person can be granted a Right of Occupancy and issued a Certificate of Occupancy for a specified period, often 99 years. Such a person is an Occupant and not Owner of the land and as such expected to pay Rent (Ground Rent) to the land owner(state government).

My authority are sections 1, 5, 10, 15,17 and 28 of the Land Use Act, 1978.

“There Is A Prohibited Line For Positioning Of Buildings On Your Land”
 
There are laws regulating the positioning of buildings and other obstructions with reference to roads. Presently, in Abuja and most states in Nigeria, you cannot build anything within 30.48 meters of the centre line of a road. Hence, that part of your land must be left empty. Doing otherwise is a criminal offence.
 
My authority is sections 5 and 8 of the Building Lines Regulation Act, 1936, Cap 482 Laws of the FCT 2006 and other similar equivalent laws of other states of Nigeria.
