In another news, As hoodlums continue their looting spree in Lagos and other states, the iconic trademarked rounded glasses on the statue of the late premier of the former western region, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, has been removed.
The pair of glasses was removed from the monument which is located in Ikeja as the wanton destruction of government properties and individual businesses take a turbulent turn.
The Awolowo statue was erected during the administration of former Lagos governor, Akinwumi Ambode, in recognition of the late former lawyer, nationalist and sage’s contribution to democracy.
The 20-feet statue situated along Obafemi Awolowo Way close to the Lagos Television (LTV) junction in Ikeja was unveiled in September 2017.
