A statement from anti-corruption not-for-profit organisation, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) says its office, located at 4, Akintoye Shogunle Street, off John Olugbo Street, off Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja, was burgled on Tuesday. An official, Timothy Adewale, who signed the statement, said the burglars carted away “files, some cash and damaged computers and cabinets” and threatened to return.
“The intruders somehow escaped security gates surrounding the street, before gaining access to the office building and cutting open the iron bars protecting the locked office front door.
“The offices were thoroughly ransacked and a TV screen on the wall at the reception was dropped on the floor. The intruders also dropped a threat note on the table at the reception, which reads “Not our target. We will be back.”
“The matter has been reported at the Area “F” Police Station, Ikeja, Lagos. The matter is now a subject of police investigation.
“The staff who resumed early morning on October 4, 2016 took several photos of the incident. We are assessing the situation to find out what else might be missing from the office”, the statement added”, the statement said.
