Police Arrests Seven Suspects In Connection With Robbery In Late MKO Abiola’s Home
Chief Moshood Abiola
The police has arrested seven suspects in connection to a robbery attack in the Lagos mansion of the late Chief Moshood Abiola, winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.
The attack reportedly occurred while one of Abiola’s wives and two daughters were fast asleep and after 3 robbers allegedly assessed the Toyin Street Crescent residence of the late politician through a canal. They reportedly jumped over the high fence into the compound.
The robbers left the same way they came, with neither the guards nor domestic workers raising any alarm until several hours later.
The police has linked the attack to an insider connivance and seven suspects including domestic workers are in custody. Lagos Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu who confirmed the incident said;
“Yes, robbers went there and carted away unspecified amounts of jewelleries and some money. I was there personally and I spoke with Mama. There was no physical assault on her or the two daughters who were home.
“I know that some suspects are in custody but I have not been fully briefed on the number of people arrested. Some of the domestic staff were also arrested.
“The security on the ground did not alert the police or any security agency when the incident was going on. They said they noticed unusual movement within the compound at the time but did not inform us. The police were only told several hours after the robbery.“
