SERAP Offices Vandalized, Looted By Unknown Assailants

The offices of the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), a non-governmental organization dedicated to strengthening the welfare of Nigerians by combatting corruption, were vandalized and looted according to a statement by the Senior Staff Attorney Timothy Adewale. The identity of the assailants was not disclosed in the statement.

According to the statement, “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.”

He added, “some of the computers and cabinets were damaged. The intruders broke into the office safe, taking away some petty cash and files.”

However, according to Mr. Adewale, the assailants left a threatening note to SERAP saying “Not Our Target. We Will Be Back.”

The meaning behind this note was not immediately disclosed in the press statement. Mr. Adewale said that the matter has been reported to the Area F Police station in Ikeja, Lagos.
