The Lagos Island Branch C chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Adekunle Lawal, popularly known as Kunle Poly, has bemoaned the recent invasion of the palace of Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, while commiserating with the families of victims of the #EndSARS protest.
Expressing worries over the recent looting of public and private businesses, especially the invasion of the palace of the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, Kunle Poly, while speaking with journalists in Lagos, recently, said he is still in shock over the incident as he could not believe the peaceful protest turned the other way round.
“After seeing the aftermath of the scenario called #EndSARS that really created serious havocs within the state and it’s environ, I felt a high sense of responsibility to address the teeming youths of Lagos, especially those vibrant ENDSARS protesters to please calm down and bring every agitation that may causes further chaos to an end.
“I also want to say that I am really disappointed in those youths who invaded the palace of the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Aremu Osuolale Akiolu, last Wednesday, October 21, 2020. This act is so insulting and hard to be accommodated as it’s disrespectful to the entire Yorubaland,” he said.
According to the NURTW boss who hails from Lagos Island, his role is to preach peace, unity and love among all youths within Lagos Island, as this would allow the Lagos State Government to promptly actualise a better Lagos for all Lagosians.
His words: “I would like to beseech every youth within Lagos to comply with the rules and regulations that were set aside to curb hoodlums amidst the #EndSARS protest.
“However, I want to sincerely thank the Lagos State government for taking a proactive and prompt action. Kudos to Governor Sanwo-Olu for the bold steps taken so far.
“Let me also commiserate with the family of police officers and civilians who lost their loved ones in the process. I pray God will comfort everyone and may He continue to protect all of us.”
