The Oba of Lagos, Rtd AIG Rilwan Babatunde Osuolale Aremu Akiolu may have called for trouble after he claimed last Wednesday that hoodlums had stolen $2 Million and ₦17 Million Naira from his Eko palace during the last #EndSars protest.

The highly revered Monarch who spoke at the Glover Hall Memorial Commissioning, Lagos on Wednesday, lamented the devastation inflicted on Lagos by the protesters, with his palace inclusive.

The Oba declared in his statements:
“I can now say it publicly that they stole from my palace two million dollars cash and N17 million, I am now saying it publicly.”

“I am not a wealthy man, but I am a contented person and Insha Allahu, I will continue to be rich.”

“Those who committed the offence would not have done that if they knew the implication. But as a father, I won’t place any curse on them,” he added.

But those statements by Oba Akiolu has rather provoked criticisms and backlash on social media as Nigerians began to question how he got such a huge amount of monies that were kept at the coffers of his palace.

Many Nigerians who reacted to the story on social media lambasted the monarch, questioning the source of such a huge amount of monies that were stashed in the palace.

These are some of the elicited comments:

According to J. Osaghae, who commented on the story, “Oba Rilwan Akiolu, can you tell Nigerians where you got $2 million and 17 million naira? You are shameless to come out with this type of story. You are not a clean man. Your curse cannot work on those who took the money.

“You cursed before but it did not work. You gave them an ultimatum to return what was taken away from your palace that you turned into a bank, but it did not work.”

Suraj Adejumo wrote, “This King is shameless and callous. Two million dollars!”

Sunny Lulu, who reacted to the story, said: “In my opinion, although it is sad to note that the Oba lost such a huge amount of money supposedly to those who vandalized his palace (they are not the #Endsars protesters, but the hoodlums sponsored by failed politicians), it’s very difficult to sympathize with the monarch because keeping such a large amount of money at home could be hazardous, e.g. fire incidents.”

One of the social media users suggested and urged that the EFCC should arrest the monarch so that he can explain the source of the money.

“The EFCC should arrest you, so you can explain where you got the money from. Even banks in America wouldn’t keep that amount of money in their vaults,” Mashood, who commented on the story said.

According to Ade Badejo, “Oga that one na voice mail. You get that kind amount; subjects living around you can’t even feel it. Where’s your humanity? You wan carry the money go to heaven? At that age?”
