Gunmen Invade Ambode’s Mother’s Home


 

It has been gathered that armed gunmen allegedly attacked the home of the mother of Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.

There was speculation that it was a kidnapping attempt. Some reports stated that the armed men had beaten up Mrs. Ambode’s security detail and went for her.

It was also reported that she was saved as a swift reinforcement by the state’s police command thwarted the ploy of the assailants, who fled the scene. The back-up team arrived at 8:10 p.m.

The incident was said to have occurred at 24 Oguntona Crescent, Gbagada Estate I, around 7:30pm.

According to Premium Times, a senior Lagos State Government official close to Mr. Ambode said that while the incident happened close to Mrs. Ambode’s home, it was not a kidnapping attempt.

He said that what actually happened was that a man had gone to call military personnel attached to Operation Mesa to beat up the security detail attached to Mrs Ambode after he’d been told not to park his car outside.

He said “We heard from the governor’s security that the matter was not about kidnapping,” the source said. “What happened was that a man parked his vehicle outside the home of the governor’s mother and the policemen there asked him to take his vehicle away.”

“He then went to call men of Operation Mesa to deal with the policemen, that was what caused the disturbance.”
