Idumota Bloodbath: We have no hand in the mayhem —King Kosoko Royal Family
Though calm and what seems like normalcy has returned to Lagos Island after bloody fight erupted between miscreants of Idumota and Kosoko over what cannot be ascertain at the moment, and this has been capitalised on to spread false stories about different people mostly for political gains, one of the names being peddle are the distinguished King Kosoko Royal Family.
In a statement made available to the press, the family has come out to disassociate itself from the mayhem that has seen many dead and many more seriously wounded. In the statement jointly signed by Prince Abiola Olojo-Kosoko, Oloja of Lagos (Elect) and the Head of Family of King Kosoko Royal Family: Alh Mutiat Ashabi Alli-Balogun, it reads “It is with great dismay that the King Kosoko Royal family and the Oloja of Lagos Chieftaincy Family wishes to be detached from the 19th of January 2022 Lagos Island unrest titled Idumota Vs Kosoko.
“It is of importance to state here that the King Kosoko Royal Family is not an organisation but a reputable Royal / Chieftaincy family in Lagos State and three other West African countries. And as such does not have anything to do with the 19th of January 2022 Lagos Island unrest orchestrated by some street gangs for selfish reasons,which we believe the Nigerian Police force are still investigating.
“We hereby wish to disassociate ourselves from the unrest and we shall appreciate that the general public desist from the claim that Kosoko is in anyway part of the unrest, “the statement reads.
It is important to note that so many names has been flying as having something or the other to do about the bloody civil unrest that is now under police control since it started on Thursday and their findings will be made known to the public.
