Senator Sha’aba Lafiagi, representing Kwara North Senatorial District in the Senate, lost his country home in the State, after it was set ablaze by an angry mob.

Recall, that Senator Lafiagi is from the same State as the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who is representing Kwara Central Senatorial District.

According to Sahara Reporters, the incident occurred after Soldiers in his convoy shot four people on the eve of the Local Government Elections in the State.
Youths in Lafiagi township had reportedly blocked the culvert at Sodo in a peaceful protest, demanding that the Senator completes the long-abandoned culvert before the LGA elections on Saturday, November 18, but the Soldiers present opened fire on the protesters.
The report quoted eyewitnesses as saying that several people suffered injuries. In retaliation, the youths set the Senator’s home ablaze.
Residents were also said to have fled the town, after more Soldiers arrived and began shooting.
