An activist, Prince Adenigbagbe who supported the #EndSars protests and encouraged witnesses to testify at the Lagos Judicial Panel has been declared missing.

An eyewitness who spoke to Reference Daily News on the condition of anonymity narrated how masked gunmen suspected to be officers from the Department of State Services, DSS, invaded the Lagos home of Adenigbagbe.

The eyewitness said:

“It was around 12:30 am on Tuesday 21, December 2021, I came out to check if the gate of our house has been locked and I decided to look outside when I saw two white Toyota Hilux pick-up in front of Adenigbagbe’s house.

“I saw some masked gunmen men jumping down from the Hilux and four of them besieged the gate while about three or four others jumped into the compound and within ten minutes they jumped out again and left.”

After this shocking incident the family of Adenigbagbe and his tenants in the building
fled the house and became incommunicado. All efforts to reach them proved abortive.

But on January 10, 2022, Reference Daily News was able to get in touch with the daughter of Prince Adenigbagbe who confirmed that on the day the masked gunmen attacked their residence they had gone to church.

She said:

“We had gone to Church for a program and when we came back we met the whole house upside-down, our doors pulled down and everywhere scattered but we were shocked that nothing was missing. Even the money, about N43,000 which was on the dinning table was still intact.”

She further explained that it was not the first time that these masked gunmen will raid their home.

“Sometimes around November 28, 2021 at about 11:PM some gunmen barged into our house and asked after our dad, they entered every corner of the house including the manhole, it was a terrible scene that night, one of them kept saying ‘He has confidence and can encourage witnesses, we will deal with him’, but they left that day because our Dad was not at home.

“As I speak to you now we do not know where our Dad is, his phone numbers are not going through, no message from him at all. We are all very scared. My siblings will not stop crying as are afraid of going to school and our house is under siege. We keep getting messages from people in our area that strange faces keep coming around all the time. We are afraid for our lives.”

Since the conclusion of #Endsars Lagos Panel, some members and witnesses who testified have been receiving assassination threats. Ms Kamsi Ibeh who testified at the Panel was attacked and stabbed by suspected hoodlums sponsored by the government.

Many others like Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa (SAN), Wiseman Kunle and Barrister Dele Farotimi who were actively involved in the struggle to ensure that justice is served to victims of Lekki Toll Gate
shootings also received death threats.
