Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo recently revealed this during the Rebuild Lagos: Dialogue and Partnership event organized by the Lagos State Government to inaugurate the Eight-member Board of Trustees of Rebuild Lagos Trust Fund held at Ikeja.
According to him, the government has to regain the lost confidence with the people so that a repeat of what happened last month can be prevented.
He added that the destruction that took place in October was a national tragedy and a major setback for Nigeria.
His words, “Never in the history of our nation has this former capital city, and our nation’s commercial nerve centre experienced such mindless acts of violence and the enormity of destruction that occurred.
“Perhaps, it is worth emphasising that the destruction and disruption of life and work in Lagos is a national tragedy and a major economic setback for the nation, even as we face the most difficult economic challenges in our generation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We have seen how the noblest causes, such as the EndSARS protests designed to call attention to a serious malignant problem of brutality and extrajudicial killings, can be subverted, leading to the exact opposite of its objectives; chaos murder, looting, and arson.
“So, we saw what can happen when the restraints of law and order are loosed and anarchy is given free rein.
“These trying times offer an invaluable learning opportunity, a teachable moment, and it is the lessons we draw from this period that will shape our path going forward.”
