#EndSARS: $2m, N17m stolen from my palace – Oba Akiolu
The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has said that $2 million and N17 million were stolen when youths attacked his palace hours after soldiers opened live ammunition on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll plaza.
He said this on Wednesday during the commissioning of the Glover Hall Memorial in Lagos.
The monarch, who lamented that Lagos suffered “huge” destruction, said those who attacked his palace were ignorant of the implication of what they did.
He also appealed to the Federal Government to assist Lagos to recover from the destruction, saying Lagos suffered from the aftermath of the #EndSARS protest than any other state in the country.
He 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. We host many people here, not Lagosians alone. The incident that happened here from October 20 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 know the implication. But as a father, I won’t place any curse on them.”
