Gunmen Invade MKO Abiola’s Home, Steal Millions


Unknown Gunmen invaded the Ikeja home of late Moshood Abiola on Wednesday and stole properties worth millions of naira.

“Armed robbers invaded the house of the late MKO Abiola in the Opebi area of Ikeja. They carted away a lot of valuable items,” a source told Punch.

Although others in the premises refused to comment, a resident who spoke on the condition of anonymity said, “The operation occurred around 4 am when the security guards were asleep. They dug the ground of the back gate and gained entry. They carted away property and escaped.”

Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, is believed to have paid a visit to the family.

“Three people were involved in the operation and from what I gathered when I visited the house today, only one of the suspects was armed. The suspects gained entry through the canal because the building backed the canal and I was told that some pieces of jewellery and money were stolen. I have beefed up security in the area.

“None of the residents, including his wife, Bisi and two girls were attacked or injured during the operation. We have made some arrests and commenced an investigation into the incident,” Odumosu said when he was contacted.
