End SARS: Return Oba of Lagos’s staff of office, shoe – Shehu Sani begs

Shehu Sani, former Kaduna Central Senator, has urged those who broke into the palace of the Oba of Lagos State, Rilwan Akinolu’s palace to return items they looted.

Sani appealed to the mob who broke into the palace to return the Oba’s staff of office and shoe.

In a tweet, the former lawmaker urged them to respect the throne and return the items.

According to Sani: “Whoever carted away the staff of the Oba and his shoe should please respect the throne and return it.”

The palatial residence of the monarch was on Wednesday ransacked by an irate mob.

The whereabouts of Akiolu is not known yet.

His staff of office, regarded as the symbol of authority, was taken away.

Akiolu was hauled to safety by soldiers who responded to a distress call before the assailants struck.

The attack followed the hijacking of the peaceful End SARS protest by hoodlums.
