- The former lawmaker's residence in Aiyetoro Gbede was about to be looted by hoodlums when residents came on a rescue mission
- Melaye thanked the security operatives and community effort for preventing what could have been a huge personal loss
Dino Melaye, a former lawmaker representing Kogi West, has thanked the people of his community, Aiyetoro Gbede in Kogi state, for preventing looters from invading his residence.
In a tweet by the former senator on Tuesday, October 27, Melaye said the hoodlums, who have been wreaking havoc and looting government and private individual properties, stormed his house in an attempt to plunder.
Melaye, however, said the hoodlums were prevented, all thanks to the "community efforts, Okun youths and women."
The flamboyant former senator also thanked the security operatives for preventing what could have been a huge personal loss and damage should the house be looted.
In his words:
"Community efforts stop hoodlums from attacking my house in Aiyetoro Gbede. I thank Okun Youths and Women. Security Agencies did well too. Above all I thank God Almighty."
Legit.ng recalls that some angry Nigerians and hoodlums, taking the advantages of the EndSARS momentum, have engaged on a looting spree and wanton destruction.
The unfortunate trend, which began with the attack of the COVID-19 warehouse in Maza-maza in Lagos state, has seen some of the hoodlums descend on stores and shops.
Consequently, many warehouses have since been damaged, destroyed and completely looted in different states including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.
Although the security operatives have been trying to put an end to the unfortunate trend, the looters, irrespective of tribes or faith, are still resolute in attacking the properties belonging to politicians and some advantaged individuals.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari, in a statement on Sunday, October 25, issued a stern warning to the parents and guardians of those who have been continually looting under the guise of protest.
The president urged the parents to warn their wards against destruction and stealing of goods they cannot account for.
