Former Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba says his house looted and set ablaze in Calabar, Cross River State took 18 years to build.

The house located at  Asari Eso Calabar layout was vandalised after hoodlums hijacked peaceful #EndSARS protests.

He said he started building the house in 1991 and did not complete it until 2009.

The ex-lawmaker disclosed this while giving account of what he lost in the Saturday, October 24 incident.

Ndome-Egba, who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), said the floor was the only thing left after the hoodlums ransacked the house and set it ablaze.

Quote
“Everything was lost. Every fitting including toilet seats and water tanks were removed. My collection of out-of-print books, historical photographs and documents, clothing, etc, were lost. I lost furniture; name it; only the floor was spared. All the cars were razed. It will interest you to know that I built the house from 1991 to 2009,” he told Vanguard.

However, Ndoma-Egba said he bore no grudges against the hoodlums that looted and set his home ablaze, describing his loss as  sacrifice for Nigeria’s development.

Asked to evaluate the loss in monetary terms, the ex-lawmaker said, “It is difficult to put any value but you can imagine a house that was started in 1991 and finished in 2009. I really don’t know why my house was attacked, I can’t explain but my attitude is this: I have forgiven whoever it is but that is without prejudice to whatever the law enforcement agencies will come up with. I have forgiven them. I understand the anger of the season, I understand the frustration of the youth and if this is a sacrifice I have to make for their lives to be better or for the society to be better, I will gladly make it.”

You do that at your plenary in the senate, the problem has come home to visit you for refusing to speak up. Most of the youths from your area were being used as servants in other states.

The boys knew what and how the game is being play, who wish to build a home for 19 years as you claimed.
