Hoodlums on Saturday attacked the residence of the senator representing Oyo Central senatorial district, Teslim Folarin.
According to report, the hoodlums in their scores gained entrance into the Oluyole Estate Residence of the Senator in Ibadan around 12pm, looting various properties.
Some of the items carted away are empowerment materials which include motorcycles, grinding machines, deep freezes and generators.
Folarin, who confirmed the ugly incident in a telephone interview on Fresh 105.9FM, explained that he was gathering the items for empowerment of his constituents later in December. He stated that some of his friends and supporters donated some of the items, adding that others contributed money for the purchase.
The senator noted that over 250 motorcycles, deep freezers, food items among others which he said were meant for the empowerment were carted away, describing the incident as sad.
He said: “The situation is really sad. Life is really frustrating in Nigeria, truly. We know people are angry but violence is not the way out. We need to begin to work together to prevent a recurrence of this. I just thank God that nobody died in the attack to my house.”
When asked if he saw the attack coming, Folarin said anybody could have suspected that it could get to this level but that he never expected that his own house could be attacked.
Meanwhile, men of Operation Burst had dispersed the hoodlums and surrounded the house.
