#EndSARS: HOODLUMS LOOTED 350 MOTORCYCLES, 400 DEEP FREEZERS, 350 GENERATORS FROM MY HOUSE ~says Senator Folarin
Following the new turn of events in the #EndSARS, where youths broke into Covid-19 palliative wharehoses and made away with stored food and other items, Senator Teslim Folarin representing Oyo Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly is now counting his loses, after some angry youths invaded and looted his home at the weekend.
In a statement made available to Brave Views, Senator Folarin disclosed that over 1,100 empowerment items such as motorcycles, deep freezers, generators and grinding machines, were looted from his house among others.
Recall that the angry youths attacked his house located at the Oluyole Estate extension in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The Senator said the attack was carried out by those he described as coordinated hoodlums, describing the invasion as evil, barbaric and unfortunate.
He insisted that the invaders and looters were not the same youths protesting an end to operation of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS and against police brutality “but coordinated hoodlums.”
He described the incident as pure daylight robbery, adding that the attackers broke down doors to rooms in his house to steal valuable assets.
“The actions of the hoodlums are condemnable and it is very disheartening that some bad elements in our society are hiding under the guise of #ENDSARS protests to loot and disrupt peaceful atmosphere in Nigeria,” he said.
“I thank God we did not record any fatality, despite the violent invasion of my Oluyole house, looting of materials and vandalisation therein.
For the sake of clarification, I have just formally taken receipt of the empowerment materials from a federal agency coordinating constituency projects for federal lawmakers.
“Also, I used my personal money to procure additional materials. I took stock of the materials ahead of a mega empowerment programme scheduled to hold in November 2020.
“Looted materials included over 350 motorcycles, 400 deep freezers, 350 generators, grinding machines, sewing machines, hairdressing and barbing salon materials, vulcanising machines and many more,” he narrated.
