Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai has admitted that he almost cried to see the extent of devastation in Lagos following the violence that erupted during the crisis of # EndSARS.
The Kaduna State Governor acknowledged that it is the right thing for people to do to express outrage over problems, but he refused to ruin public property, describing the recent incidents in the south-western state as a setback.
El-Rufai, who accused those who “thrive in terror” of infiltrating “the protest to achieve their agenda of wreaking a large-scale destruction of public assets and facilities in Lagos,” averred that Governor Sanwo-Olu was doing everything he could to avoid violent turning of protests against police brutality.
He was quoted saying during the visit to the Lagos state Governor;
“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 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.
“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.”
