Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said the government will not tolerate violence.

He gave the warning during a visit to Fagba in Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government Area.

Last week, days of clashes caused a number of casualties and destruction of property.

The crisis which broke out in the aftermath of the End SARS protests took an ethnic dimension.

Sanwo-Olu described the level of damage as colossal and unfortunate.

The governor assured that enumeration would start immediately.

He said the two local councils (Ifako-Ijaiye and Ojokoro) affected by the mayhem will collaborate and draw up a list of victims and their losses.

Sanwo-Olu gave troublemakers “final notice”, disclosing that security in affected areas would be heightened.

“We are coming to clear this whole place, and we will make sure that you do not disturb or harass the peace-loving people that we have in this neighborhood. We have Hausa community, Igbo community and Yoruba community, and they are living well.

“You need to look for what to do. We will not allow you to come and tarnish the image and the peace in Fagba and in Lagos. We will come and see what we can do to help the youth. Once we do that, we’d have given you an opportunity to remain law-abiding and peaceful. If not, we will be hard.

“Please let peace reign. Let us live like brothers and sisters in Lagos. We will do the compensation as soon as we get the breakdown of the enumeration. We might not be able to give you all the full benefits, but we will ensure that we do not leave you alone.

“Please let’s be sincere about it. If you don’t have more than two shops in this place, don’t say you have eight. If you don’t have more than two rooms, don’t say you have nine rooms. That is the only way government can assist well, and we can help,” the governor added.
