The CIG President, Felix Duke, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Duke noted that the Curiousity Underwears owned by Nollywood star and CIG Executive Member, Lilian Bach, was among shops burgled by hoodlums on Oct. 21 at the Adeniran Ogunsanya Shopping Mall, Surulere Lagos.

He regretted that many Nigerians were affected by looting and destruction by the hoodlums.

According to him, business owners are still recovering from the effects of COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are begging government at all levels to find ways to assist those whose property were looted or vandalised by hoodlums who hijacked the peaceful #EndSARS protest.

“This is very important because without tangible assistance or compensation, it will be very difficult for them to rise again and sustain staff under their employments, ” Duke told NAN.

He disclosed that Bach was out of Nigeria when the looting occurred.
“In the CIG, we believe that a pain to one is a pain to all; so, we are deeply touched by the unfortunate incident that happened to one of our own, Lilian Bach.

“We sincerely sympathise with her because her shop was burgled by hoodlums, goods were taken away and other things that the hoodlums could not steal were destroyed,” he said.

Bach had taken to her Instagram page to regret the situation, saying that hoodlums had put many Nigerians in huge debts through the looting and destruction. (NAN)
