The mother, who was pensive and heart-broken, told some sympathizers who came to console the family in their home in Ewu Tuntun, Mafoluku Oshodi area of Lagos that her son never gave her any trouble while alive. She also disclosed her notice of his extremely reserved and shy nature which gave her concern. She said sadly, ‘‘Why would my dear son commit suicide? He cannot do that.  I know him. He was manipulated and God will fight for us. I will forever love my son. I know he was too reserved. I forced him to talk to me. I asked him if he was facing any threats anywhere or he didn’t like the he was attending but he said no. Since he entered the university, his reserved nature got worse. He was neat and obedient. He is a son I wish to have again and again.’’

I wanted to share looted palliatives on my birthday – Lagos lawmaker, SOB Agunbiade [VIDEOS]

Published

A lawmaker, Sanai Agunbiade aka SOB, has reacted to the invasion of his residence by hoodlums.

Agunbiade is the Majority Leader of Lagos State House of Assembly.

On Friday, an irate mob stormed his house in Ikorodu and carted away COVID-19 palliatives.

Agunbiade (Ikorodu Constituency 1), in a statement on Saturday, described the incident as a planned attack.

The legislator said he got intelligence reports of “the plan to exterminate” him but took it as unfounded rumours.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain added that the palliatives were to be shared on his birthday on Sunday.

The assembly member recalled that at the peak of the pandemic, he personally distributed palliatives to his constituents more than three times.

“For my birthday on 25th October 2020, I have sent out, through my Media Team, notice of my intention to give support to 50 widows who have already been nominated by different groups in a programme christened Widows Mite for Widows and also distribute to some vulnerable and indigent individuals across the three local councils of my constituency, some palliative materials donated by the state and federal governments, as well as myself.”

Agunbiade decried that the same items were those stolen from his house.

“The barbaric event of Friday is though shocking but like a dolphin which is happy even in the middle of giant waves and horrible storm, I am stable and my faith in the mercy and grace of God is very fat. For certain the looters are not #Endsars protesters because the youth in Ikorodu engaged in very peaceful and well coordinated protest. The perpetrators of the attack on my house are group of assailants on a mission targeted at my life.

Agunbiade regretted that his certificates, travelling passports of his family and other valuables were stolen.
