The oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, on Wednesday, February 3 narrated what he lost during the #ENDSARS protests last year.
Hoodlums had burgled into his palace to cart away items and properties – with Akiolu saying they also stole his $2 million and N17 million..
He said this during the official handover of the Glover Memorial Hall which has been remodelled.
Oba Akiolu told the gathering that he was making it known publicly for the first time that #EndSARS protesters stole $2 million and N17 million in his palace.
The monarch said: “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 away from my palace $2 million and N17 million.
“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.”
