With a long list of destroyed lives and private cum public properties before and after the Nigerian soldiers shot at over 1,000 #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos, Tuesday, October 20, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State Wednesday said the level of destruction in Lagos State is scary.

The governor in an interview on Arise TV disclosed there have been all manner of conspiracy theories about the attack on public facilities in recent times.

Sanwo-Olu, however, revealed that the relevant security agencies are working on such conspiracy theories.

ConsumerConnect reports dozens of public properties, including BRT Bus terminals, several mass transit buses, Oba of Lagos Palace, VIO/FRSC office, TV Continental, The Nation Newspaper Head Office, Oriental Hotel Lekki, GTBank, Access and   local government council secretariats headquarters, among others were destroyed in the aftermath of Tuesday’s shooting of #EndSARS protesters at Lekki.

He urged all Lagosians to reflect on the destruction of the public properties.

“Are there other agenda we do not know? Why would we have this level of destruction? These are the scary thoughts that I have been having since,” Sanwo-Olu asked.

He stated: “For me it is scary. I asked myself how did we get here? Is this about #EndSARS? How will somebody be destroying brand new buses?

“How will somebody be destroying our heritage? How will people be destroying the highest traditional institution in the state.”

This is the time for healing process, he said, while calling on the people to begin to engage one another towards a healing and reconciliation process.

Report also stated the Lagos State Governor, Thursday, October 22 declared that  following the 72-hour curfew the state government earlier ordered across the state, the curfew may be eased Friday, October 22.

According to him, once the streets have been cleared and nerve relaxed, “we might slow down the curfew by tomorrow (Friday) or next tomorrow (Saturday) at the latest.”
