Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state has revealed that Nigerian army personnel attached to Operation MESA were responsible for the attack on his mother’s home.
The governor stressed that the soldiers behind the incidence would be appropriately sanctioned, although their identity still remained unknown.
On Friday, June 3, there was an unusual commotion around Christianah Ambode’s home at 24 Oguntona Crescent, Gbagada Estate I, Lagos.
Speaking with Premium Times, Mrs Ambode’s neighbours said that heavily armed gunmen invaded her residence and allegedly attempted to abduct her.
According to a statement signed by Habib Haruna, the chief press secretary to the governor, the disturbance was between Mrs Ambode’s security detail and “unruly” military personnel attached to Operation Mesa.
“We would like to put on record that the disturbance was not a kidnap attempt on the governor’s mother as nothing untoward happened to her.
“What really transpired was that a man parked his vehicle in front of the residence of the governor’s mother and the security detail attached to the building asked him not to park there so as not to block the entrance,” he stated.
The governor further explained that the driver who triggered the violence was a military man in mufti.
“The man who claimed to be a military personnel was not in uniform as at the time of the unfortunate incident but he insisted on parking in front of the building on the ground that he was a military personnel.
“He then went on to invite military personnel attached to Operation MESA to beat Mrs. Ambode’s police details after he was advised not to park his vehicle outside the building,” he said.
Although the attackers were yet to be identified, Ambode revealed that officials of the state government were taking appropriate steps to sanction the unruly military personnel who joined their colleague to disturb public peace.
