A mob has set the family home of Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, situated on Omididun Street, Surelere, Lagos State on Fire.
It was gathered that one of the youths 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. Moments after the youths destroyed the house, they succeeded in burning down the building.
An eyewitness, who wished to remain anonymous, 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.
“However, the youths soon gathered again and burnt down the house. The fire is currently spreading but firefighters have arrived at the scene.”
It was gathered that policemen attached to the Adeniji Adele Police Station raced to the scene in a bid to handle the situation.
