Lagos — A former Deputy National Chairman of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has called for permanent dismantling of the Lekki tollgate along the Lekki-Epe expressway and Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge in Lagos State.
He said after the dismantling, a monument should be erected in honour of those who reportedly died in the shooting of #EndSARS protesters last Tuesday.
George, who said he was speaking as an elder statesman and not as a party man, also called for thorough investigation into the alleged killing of protesters at the tollgate.
At a press conference in Lagos, yesterday, the Atona of Oodua of Yoruba land said the uprising witnessed in the state in recent days was a reflection of the "rage and anger" of the youth with the current governance system which he said was not working.
In the address titled, 'Lagos State; The Anger and The Rage', the PDP leader also called for the scrapping of the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) as well as Alpha Beta, a firm allegedly collecting taxes on behalf of the state government.
He called for a comprehensive audit of the finances of the state government by an independent audit firm.
