I Nearly Shed Tears Seeing The Destruction Of Properties In Lagos – El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has rued the recent destruction of properties in Lagos State, saying he almost cried after seeing photos of the damage.

“I have spent time to see some of the pictures of the destruction done on public properties in Lagos and I nearly shed tears,” the governor said on Thursday when he visited Sanwo-Olu to commiserate with him over the development.

In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Lagos State Governor, Gboyega Akosile, El-Rufai was quoted as saying that “Anyone who cares about development and progress will cry after seeing what has been done to public facilities and people’s investment that provided jobs to youths.”

While the Kaduna State Governor agreed that expressing anger over issues is the right thing for people to do, he faulted the destruction of public properties, describing the recent incidents in the south-western state as a setback.

“The Government of Lagos and the Federal Government will have to re-invest scarce resources that could have been used for other things to rebuild the vandalised facilities,” the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) added during the visit to Lagos State House in Marina.

He said his Lagos counterpart did all he could to prevent the protests against police brutality from taking a violent turn, saying the gravity of the destruction is “pure evil.”

Despite the violence that followed the #EndSARS protest, the Lagos State Governor assured that his government is committed to getting justice for those brutalised by the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) team of the police.
