Hoodlums set Lagos on fire, Sanwoolu’s private house and other facilities burnt.

Lagos the commercial capital of Nigeria is on fire Wednesday as several facilities private and public has been destroyed and the people told Patmos Media Line that they have started operation TOTAL ANNIHILATION OF TINUBU (TAT).

In the hulabaloo that made Lagos look like a war zone, one of the youths alleged they have identified the voice that gave instruction for the CCTV at Lekki Toll Gate to be that of Tinubu.

Last night, Governor Babjide Sanwoolu said non of the protesters died but Wednesday morning he admiited death of two persons and involvement of soldiers yet the Military High Command swore soldiers were not involved when Sanwoolu claimed they were but only shot into the air.

Patmos Media Line situation room reports that there is violence in almost every part of Lagos and Abuja as at Wednesday and we could see Police shooting to scare away hoodlums in Lagos.

A group of angry youths on Wednesday morning gathered around the family home of Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Omididun Street, Lagos Island, throwing stones at the house and eventually setting it on fire.

Sanwo-Olu had imposed a curfew on the state due to the #EndSARS protests. Soldiers who were subsequently called in opened fire on unarmed protesters, leading to the deaths of at least ten persons, mostly youths.

An eyewitness said that one of the youths with holding a jerry can of petrol was seen soaking the house in petrol but was quickly stopped by residents for fear that the fire could spread uncontrollably.

He said, “Around 7.45am, angry youths gathered around Sanwo-Olu’s family home on Omididun Street, Lagos Island, throwing stones and shattering glasses.

“One of the youths poured petrol on the building but was immediately prevented from setting it ablaze because the fire could spread and lead to loss of lives.”

It was learnt that policemen attached to the Adeniji Adele Police Station raced to the scene in a bid to quell the violence.

However, the angry mob succeeded in setting the house on fire.

The hoodlums forced Television Continental (TVC) belonging to Tinubu to stop transmission and burnt the station with all available cars in the premises.

The Ports Authority House was burnt with the Lagos Television LTV.

Channels Television was smarter closing transmission and ordering for private security and after being off air for a while came back at 1300 hours.

The plunder of the Obas palace at Lekki was like a Nollywood movie as the Obas family scampered into safety. The hoodlums damaged vehicles and sightable properties and took away the staff of office of the Oba as “the symbol of our victory”.

The people moved to Lekki Toll gate and formerly burnt down the installations.

The pathetic thing was about 30 new BRT buses that were burnt Wednesday morning. The Lasma premises and Road Safety offices were also burnt and officials there ran for dear live.

Our monitoring team at Alausa and Oregun saw a different thing as Police engagement in conversation with people there asking them to team up and protect there properties. We were told the hoodlums that were not from Oregun were forced to retreat with resistance from residents and little damage was done.

In Abuja, Protesters laid siege at Dutse and Bwari blocking movements and hindering commercial activities.

Apo settlement which saw terrible damage at the mechanic village on Tuesday evening was still tense with RRS police roving the area.
