OYOGist.com has learned that the nationwide protest which snowballed into a free for all looting spree quiets down, Government agencies and private individuals have had cause to cry out in anguish over the level of destruction carried out by hoodlums and some very aggrieved individuals.

One of such victims of the looting, Senator Bassey Ndoma Egba has cried put to the hoodlums to return his father’s judge robes which were stolen in the mayhem.
The former senator and former chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC, while narrating the incident that led to the whole chaos noted that he was not in the country when the incident occurred.
According to him, he had gotten some Intel that some irate youths were aiming to attack his house and that of 2 other senators, senator Gershom Bassey and Senator Eno both from the same state.
He said he immediately sent an sms alerting the other senators of the sinister plan and to also alert the security agencies to stand guard but all that was to no avail.
Pictures of his house that later went viral showed the youths having a free time while looting the house dry.
From sitting room sofas to toilet seats, the house was emptied and the other senators also bore the same fate as senator Gershom’s house was razed down.
The senator also noted that he understood the times and the plight of the youths but he forgave them all the same but the only thing he required form them was to return his father’s judge robes which according to him, will be useless and mean nothing to them.
His father, the late Honorable Justice Emmanuel Takon Ndoma Egba (OFR) was called to the london Bar at the Honorable Society of the Middle Temple in November 1961 and promptly returned to Nigeria and enrolled as a Barrister at Law and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria on 21st December, 1961.
