Hoodlums attack Lagos monarch

SUSPECTED hoodlums and land grabbers  on Sunday invaded Isiu palace in Ikorodu, Lagos State in a failed abduction of the newly-installed monarch following gunshots on the premises.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Oba Okukayode Raji was given the staff of office by Lagos State Commissioner for Special Duties, Wale Ahmed, on August 24, 2020.
The monarch told NAN that the hoodlums came in dozens with dangerous weapons before the intervention of local vigilante groups that averted their plots and chased them away.
Oba Raji said he contacted the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) and the Area Commander for assistance.
The monarch, however, called on community leaders and indigenes to cooperate and solve land matters themselves to ensure absolute peace within the communities.
He also urged the Lagos State Government to intervene to  beef up security to curb reoccurrence.
