…Nigerians demand EFCC probe of Oba Akiolu
Nigerians on social media in a reaction to the allegations by the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu that hoodlums who invaded his palace during the #EndSARS protest stole his $2 million and N17 million lashed him and called for his probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Oba Akinolu said “Those who did the Iga Iduganran, I can now say it publicly that they stole from my palace $2 million cash and N17 million, I am now saying it publicly.
“I am not a wealthy man, but I am a contented person and Insha Allahu, I will continue to be rich,” Akiolu disclosed.
“Those who committed the offence would not have done that if they knew the implication. But as a father, I won’t place any curse on them.
A Nigerian on social media with the Twitter handle @UNCLE_AJALA said “The Oba of Lagos says that $2 million and N17million were stolen when hoodlums attacked his palace during the last #EndSARS protest, He should be telling EFCC what he was doing with that amount & how he got the $2m after this revelation, but this is Nigeria, even bandits dey ball”
According to @heisizumichaels “Government agencies and different state Governors cashed out with this #EndSARS Now, Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu claimed that $2million and N17million were stolen by hoodlums But truth be told. It’s only a hoodlum that can keep such amount in the house & not in the bank
@That_IjebuBadoo said “The Oba of Lagos had $2m and N17m in his house while the people around him lived in poverty, his people & people were saying his office must be respected. Respected for what? Tradition that has been used to oppress majority will forever belong in the dustbin. Use your sense.”
@dejiadefila said “So Oba of Lagos has over 700million naira in cash at home? That’s a little less than 1 trillion? One person? In this same Nigeria? Heard he was a Police officer abi? That settles it.”
@switcandyyy also said “This oba of Lagos needs to tell us, what 2million dollars and 17 million was doing in his house when the hoodlums attacked. Is his house a bank? Efcc will not see this one oooo. Police will not arrest him. What else does he do outside being an oba, please?”
