According to the source who gave his name as Agboola Kotun, the young man died mysteriously.
It will be recalled that Akinshemoyin ruling house of Lagos Island condemned, in strong terms, the looting of the traditional and ancestral heritage of Lagos State.
Thugs had on Wednesday invaded the palace, carted away the staff of office of the Oba of Lagos, Oba Ridwan Akiolu after the invasion, destroying properties and looting.
While describing as shocking and bitter the use of brute force on peace protesters by soldiers at the Lekki Toll gate on Tuesday, the ruling house, in a statement jointly signed by Prince Salami-Abisako and Prince Adeyemi Sarumi said it will not fold its arms and allow miscreants to destroy Lagos State.
“The royal house, however called for the return of the stolen staff of authority to be deposited at the Apena of Lagos within 24 hours or the deviants will face the consequences of their action. A word is enough for the wise.
