The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, said on Wednesday suspected hoodlums took away $2 million and N17 million from his palace during last year’s #ENDSARS protests in the state.
Akiolu who stated this during the commissioning of the Glover Hall Memorial in Lagos, said the youths that attacked his palace located in the Iga Idugaran area of Lagos Island did not know the implications of their action.
The hoodlums had on October 21 attacked the palace and other properties in the state following the shooting of #ENDSARS protesters by soldiers at Lekki tollgate in Lagos.
The attackers plundered the monarch’s palace for two days and went away with the staff of office.
Akiolu, who decried the extent of destruction in Lagos, appealed to the Federal Government to assist the state to recover from the incident
