Priests place curses on hoodlums that attacked Oba of Lagos palace



Local priests have cursed the assailants that attacked and looted the palace of the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu.

In a video footage which has since gone viral, the priests were heard invoking the gods to punish the attackers.

They particularly made reference to those who took the monarch’s staff of office (Opa Ase) and other items.

The Opa Ase or Opa Oba is the symbol of authority of a traditional ruler.

Speaking in Yoruba, the man that led the supplication wished the culprits bad luck.

“All the individuals that gathered to steal the king’s staff of office, it shall never be well with them. May every good thing meant for them be redirected”, he said.

The staff of office was stolen on Wednesday when a group of angry EndSARS protesters stormed the palace.

The protesters, suspected to be hoodlums, carted away food supplies, household items, gadgets and even cooled off in the swimming pool.

The whereabouts of Oba Akiolu, a former police officer, remains unknown as at the time of this report.

Akiolu was extracted by soldiers just before rampaging youths invade his residence.

They marched to the palace after the Ebute Ero police post in Idumota was set ablaze.
