Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is believed to be the main target of the attacks.

There has been widespread violence across Lagos this week.

Earlier on Wednesday, the palace of the Oba of Lagos was raided but soldiers managed to evacuate him to safety.

However, suspected hoodlums ransacked the palace and took away items, including his staff of office.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, imposed a 24-hour curfew on Tuesday but the violence has continued.
