My house was looted despite my donations to neighbours, ex-speaker Dogara laments


Yakubu Dogara has lifted the lid on how he was a victim of the hoodlums’ attack, with the former speaker of the House of Representatives saying his house in Jos, the Plateau state capital, was looted.

Speaking on Saturday, October 31, the lawmker and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain stated that his residence, which was located in Lamingo, was invaded by suspected hoodkums using the momentum of the EndSARS protest to plunder private properties.

Dogara condemned the attacks and described it as “unfortunate”, saying he did not expect his property to be attacked and looted despite his kindness to the neighbours.

The former speaker further explained that in the past, he had donated hundreds of Keke Napep to the people of Lamingo community.

Expressing sadness over the incident, Dogara said some of the items looted by th plunderers were meant for distribution to the needy in the society.

I am rather surprised that people looted my house for no just cause. Jos was known for peace making, tourism and minerals development but now the peace is no longer there, tourism and minerals is the only thing left. In fact, I am not happy with you people…”

Meanwhile, the spokesperson of the Plateua police command Dundai Peters who confirmed the attack on Dogara’s residence, said a good number of the suspected looters have been arrested and arraigned before a court of law.
