Mr. Sanai Agunbiade, the Lagos State House of Assembly Majority Leader, has disclosed he planned to distribute COVID -19 palliatives looted from his Ikorodu home on his birthday.
In a statement, the lawmaker who represents Ikorodu Constituency 1 said the palliatives were donated by good Nigerians and had planned to distribute them to members of his constituency on his birthday which was on the 25th day of October.
Part of the statement said:
To God be the glory that the violent attack on my house Friday 23rd October, and the massive destruction of everything therein did not record any fatalities.
I got intelligence reports of the plan to exterminate me early enough, but I took it as unfounded rumors. Moreso, I was not ready to have security operatives around lest lives are lost. I trusted in God’s plan for my life.
But to those that masterminded and sponsored the carnage for nothing other than political vendetta, I say ‘thank you.’ We know ourselves in Ikorodu, but God reigns supreme. God will repay every hand involved in the attack in an appropriate proportion.
I am happy to be alive to witness the 2020 anniversary of my birthday on Sunday 25th October. The plan of detractors to delete me before my birthday has failed. To God be the glory.
Let it be noted that at the peak of the covid-19 pandemic, I personally distributed palliatives to my constituents more than three (3) times at my personal expense, and recently, my team also shared palliatives to very indigent residents of Ikorodu. All these and many more efforts aimed at taking care of my constituents are public knowledge as we have a way of ensuring open nomination of beneficiaries.
And for my birthday on 25th October 2020, I have sent out, through my Media Team, a 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. Those are the materials stolen from my house yesterday. Alhamdullilah.
For certain the looters are not #Endsars protesters because the youth in Ikorodu engaged in very peaceful and well-coordinated protests. The perpetrators of the attack on my house are a group of assailants on a mission targeted at my life. They stole my certificates and traveling passports of my family. They emptied my wardrobe and that of my wife and went with other valuables…pure broad day robbery! But we thank God.
Nigerian politics is indeed very profitable! Ikorodu you have done well for me, I thank you.
For all of these, I thank God for the preservation of lives. I thank God for his infinite mercies and grace.
SOB will not go down, no matter how much they try because God is my armour. Whatever the situation, Ise Oluwa n tesiwaju insha Allah!
