EndSARS: Hoodlums stole $2 million, N17 million from my palace – Oba of Lagos

The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, said on Wednesday that a total amount of $2 million and N17 million were stolen from his palace on October 21, 2020, during the invasion of his residence following last year’s #EndSARS protests.

Mr Akiolu said this on Wednesday during the commissioning of Glover Hall Memorial in Lagos, the Punch Newspaper reported.

“The destruction we suffered in Lagos is so enormous than in any other part of the country,” Mr Akiolu said.

“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.”

Mr Akiolu said the hoodlums, who broke into his palace and stole money and other precious items, “would not have done that if they knew the implication. “But as a father, I won’t place any curse on them,” he said.

The Oba appealed to the Federal Government to assist Lagos to recover from the destruction due to the huge loss the state has suffered.
