Gunmen on Tuesday invaded and ransacked the Ikeja, Lagos residence of the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, late Chief MKO Abiola.
A statement signed by Tundun Abiola for the family and sent to ALSC Wednesday said the hoodlums ransacked the residence and subjected the family to extreme emotional torture and harassment, even as they stole cash and other valuable items belonging to the family.
The statement said that the police have since been informed of the incident and have commenced investigation.
“We are consoled by the fact that no life was lost in this unfortunate and frightening incident.
“We give glory to Almighty Allah and we thank friends and family members across the world that have called and sent messages of support and solidarity,” it stated.
