One of the buildings attacked by the hoodlums on Wednesday, October 21, 2021, was the Palace of the Oba of Lagos located at Iga Idugaran, Lagos Island, where they vandalised vehicles and carted away several artefacts.
They also went away with the staff of office commonly referred to as ‘Opa Ase’ and plundered the palace for two days.
“I will support anything that will move Lagos forward. I have appealed to the Federal Government to assist Lagos with what we have suffered. The incident that happened here from October 20th to 23rd is so saddening.
“The destruction we suffered in Lagos is so enormous than in any other part of the country.
“Many buildings were burnt, including vehicles used to generate income.
I can now say publicly that they stole $2 Million and N17 Million from my Palace.
“Those who committed the offence would not have done that if they knew the implication. But as a father, I won’t place any curse on them.”
