Thugs have today, Wednesday stormed the Palace of the Oba of Lagos located at Iga Idugaran, Lagos Island, destroying vehicles and making away with several artefacts.

A resident of Lagos Island told Our Correspondent that the thugs who invaded the palace were the same ones who set the family home of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu ablaze.

The source said “When the thugs went to attack Sanwo-Olu’s father’s home, some of them were shot by the police. This angered them and they were able to engage the police in a gunfight and overpower them. Adding that the policemen, who are attached to the Adeniji Adele Police Station, immediately made a retreat.

He said, “The angry youths made their way to the Palace of the Oba of Lagos, They alleged the king is part of the government stating that the thugs have only been attacking government institutions,”.
