Despite Donating To My Community, My House Was Looted By EndSARS Hoodlums-Dogara Laments
The former speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has expressed disappointment, lamenting how looters invaded his residence in Jos Plateau State, carting away valuable items.
The former speaker said he was not expecting his residence to be looted despite his kindness to Lamingo community where the house is located.
Speaking on Saturday, October 31, the lawmaker and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain stated that his residence, which was located in Lamingo, was invaded by suspected hoodlums using the momentum of the EndSARS protest to plunder private properties.
Dogara condemned the attacks and described it as “unfortunate”, saying he did not expect his property to be attacked and looted despite his kindness to the neighbours. The former speaker further explained that in the past, he had donated hundreds of Keke Napep to the people of Lamingo community.
Expressing sadness over the incident, Dogara said some of the items looted by the plunderers were meant for distribution to the needy in the society. “I am rather surprised that people looted my house for no just cause. Jos was known for peace making, tourism and minerals development but now the peace is no longer there, tourism and minerals is the only thing left. In fact, I am not happy with you people…”
Meanwhile, the spokesperson of the Plateau Police Command, Dundai Peters who confirmed the attack on Dogara’s residence, said a good number of the suspected looters have been arrested and arraigned before a court of law.
