Gunmen on Wednesday invaded the house of the late Chief Moshood Abiola in Ike, Lagos State and stole property worth millions of naira.
A source confirmed the development to Edujandon.com ..
“Armed robbers invaded the house of the late MKO Abiola in the Opebi area of Ikeja. They carted away a lot of valuable items,” the source said.
When our correspondent visited Abiola’s house on Wednesday, a police patrol vehicle was stationed at the front of the building.
A security guard on the premises, however, declined to speak with our correspondent who inquired about the incident.
However, a resident who spoke on the condition of anonymity said, “The operation occurred around 4 am when the security guards were asleep. They dug the ground of the back gate and gained entry. They carted away property and escaped.”
It was learnt that the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, had paid a visit to the family.
When contacted, Odumosu said some arrests had been made, adding that investigation had commenced into the incident.
“Three people were involved in the operation and from what I gathered when I visited the house today, only one of the suspects was armed. The suspects gained entry through the canal because the building backed the canal and I was told that some pieces of jewellery and money were stolen. I have beefed up security in the area.
“None of the residents, including his wife, Bisi and two girls were attacked or injured during the operation. We have made some arrests and commenced an investigation into the incident,” Odumosu said.
