EKO CLUB CONDEMNS ATTACK ON THE PALACE OF OBA OF LAGOS .
Eko club, the foremost indigenous socio-cultural club in Lagos state condemns the violent attack on the Palace of the Oba of Lagos( Iga Idunganran) by hoodlums and miscreants who hijacked the #EndSARS protest in the early hours of Wednesday 21st Oct, 2020.
The Trustees , Elders and members of the club are still in shock as we express serious concern and reservation about this reckless action of looting and carting away the staff of office ( Opa Ase) which is the Symbol of the Stool .
We are deeply saddened by this ugly development and see it as an assault on all Lagosians . It is still not clear to us how a peaceful # EndSARS protest organised by the youths can degenerate to this embarrassing level of desecrating our ancestral seat of power and historical heritage.
We urge all sons and daughters of Lagos state and Isale- Eko in particular who feel insulted by this ignoble incident to exercise restrain and take solace in the fact that Oba Rilwanu Aremu Akiolu is not hurt in anyway and Government at Federal and State levels have swung into action to bring the culprits to book .
We pray for a return of peace and stability in our dear State and Nigeria . Amen!
Dr Ade Dosunmu, MON. President, Eko Club
