Vice president Yemi Osinbajo has commiserated with the Lagos state government over loss of lives and property during the ENDSARS protest that led to riot in the state.

He said at the “Rebuild Lagos” a programme organised by the state on Monday that the destruction of lives and livelihood in Lagos is a national problem as this is the commercial nerve of the country.

Osinbajo noted that the fortunes of the nation is closely tied to that of Lagos state and that any damage to the state is a damage to the country at large.

Highlighting the roles of the police and other security agencies, Osinbajo said they should be commended, noting that the protest had noble cause but was marred by violence.

“Nevertheless the demands should be looked into,” HE SAID.
According to him, the president is awaiting the full documents of the damages and rebuilding plans from the Lagos state governor, adding that the federal gov’t has taken steps into reviewing the police law, the role of community policing.

He said the ties that bind us as a nation must be renewed with the interests of young people taking into consideration as their voice really matter. He said our state, and indeed the country need healing hence judicial panels being set up across the country to investigate cases of police brutality assuring that all those fingered would be brought to book, urging that the process should be given a chance to work, highlighting the roles of traditional and religious entities towards the success of the processes.
