Lagos State Police Command has arrested no fewer than seven persons over an attack on the home of the late Chief Moshood Abiola, the acclaimed winner of June 12, 1993 presidential election, in the wee hours of Tuesday.
Some suspected armed robbers had burgled Abiola’s family home in Lagos and made away with valuables.
Although the hoodlums subjected the family to emotional torture and harassment before stealing cash and other valuable items, no life was lost in the operation.
Acting on a report from the family, the police said they began an investigation that led to the arrest of seven persons, including the domestic workers in the residence.
Already, the arrested persons are undergoing questioning at the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
