The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, said the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, told him the state would need N1trn for reconstruction in the aftermath of the destruction caused by hoodlums who hijacked the #EndSARS protests.
Gbajabiamila spoke while fielding questions from State House correspondents after a tour of some of the destroyed assets in Lagos.
He said, “The House of Representatives will do all it can to compensate all those who suffered brutality, including policemen that lost their lives in the process.
However, he said they want to know what exactly happened at the Lekki Toll Gate. The judicial panel must reveal this. He wants to encourage Nigerians to allow peace to reign.
The speaker also said he learnt from the governor of Lagos State that it will take N1trn to rebuild what had been lost. He then lamented saying they are moving backward.
He encouraged citizens to consider the consequences of their actions before embarking on any venture. He therefore appealed to the youths to allow peace to reign henceforth.
