With over two months after the famous #EndSARS protest forced the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu out of his Iga Idungaran palace on Lagos Island, the Paramount Ruler of Lagos On New Years’ Day of 2021 danced back into 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.
A palace source had said the missing staff of office has been retrieved but it was yet to be seen publicly.
Lagos State Governor told Lagosians that their Oba was good and was waiting for the spiritual cleansing of the palace to return in there.
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.
