The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has returned to his palace, Iga Idungaran, Lagos Island, over two months after he escaped from an attack on his palace.
In a video posted on Twitter by the Senior Special Assistant to the Lagos State Governor on Health, Oreoluwa Finnih, the monarch is seen wearing a mask, dancing towards the palace with his entourage.
Finnih tweeted, “Our daddy is back home… Oba of Lagos, HRM, Alayeluwa Oba Rilwan Babatunde Osuolale Aremu Akiolu’s triumphant entry to Iga Idunganran Palace, today, Friday, January 1, 2021.”
Some soldiers had on October 21, 2020, whisked the septuagenarian away when hoodlums, who had hijacked the #ENDSARS protests, stormed the place.
The hoodlums made away with the staff of honour and plundered the palace for two days.
Lagos Island, which was one of the most affected local governments during the protests, witnessed the burning of police stations and the family home of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
