A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe has said Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the governorship flag-bearer of the Labour Party in the state, ensured that “his fellow arsonists” were not lacking in vital supplies during the extraordinary #EndSARS “uprising” of October 2020 which the APC stalwart said “nearly burned Lagos into ashes”.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the APC member submitted that “those who tried to bring Lagos down in 2020 cannot fix Lagos.
“Pictured here is Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour at the Endsars logistics center, ensuring that his fellow arsonists were not lacking in vital supplies during the uprising that nearly burned Lagos into ashes.
Ironically, he is now asking Lagosians to make him their governor,” Igbokwe wrote on his known Facebook page with an accompanying picture of the Labour Party governorship candidate on Wednesday.
This newspaper reports that tens of thousands of young Nigerians took to the streets in 2020 to protest against police brutality after a video went viral of a man allegedly killed by the notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), sparking what became known as the #EndSARS demonstrations.
Arsonists took advantage of the situation after soldiers killed unarmed protesters at Lekki tollgate in Lagos on October 20, 2020. Media houses, mall, and government facilities were burnt down in Lagos, which was the epicentre of the protest.
