The palace of the Oba of Lagos located at Iga Idugaran, Lagos Island, has been attacked by hoodlums who vandalised vehicles and carted away several artefacts.

The attackers have seized the king's staff of office commonly referred to as ‘Opa Ase’.

According to reports, the hoodlums that stormed the house were the same ones who set the family home of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu ablaze.

The hoodlums were said to have claimed that the king was a politician and deserved to be punished for the woe of the country.
