- Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has cautioned against inciting people against the government through social media
- The governor also warned against wanton destruction of public assets and private facilities
- Sanwo-Olu stressed that "enough is enough", adding that Lagos will not be brought down under his leadership watch
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has warned against continuous instigation of violence and tension through social media platforms.
The governor issued this cautionary note on Friday, October 23, saying Lagos state has witnessed enough of the pocket of violence and wanton destruction of private and public facilities during the protest.
Sanwo-Olu warned those instigating people against the government through social media activities and spreading of fake news to desist from it.
According to him, such acts are capable of jeopardising the peace and harmony of Lagos and make it vulnerable to the attacks of the hoodlums and people easily sentimentalised by emotion.
The governor, who preached love and peace, emphasised that Lagos must heal and come back together for a greater course, adding that Lagos will not lose it under his watch.
“Moving forward from the destruction, we have to continue the process of healing ourselves. We need to stop some of our citizens still using social media to instigate or incite the people.
“It will not be under my watch that we will lose the city that has the largest economy in the entire black nation.
“Enough is enough. I have moved round and I saw that our people want peace. On this, we are committed to bringing lasting peace back to the state,”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Governor Sanwo-Olu paid a visit to various scenes of destruction across Lagos state for the assessment of vandalised public assets and private properties during the hijacked EndSARS protest.

It would be recalled that many properties including the palace of Oba of Lagos state were looted and destroyed as the ongoing demonstration against the brutality of the police took a violent turn.
In the spirit of responsive leadership, Governor Sanwo-Olu, his deputy Obafemi Hamzat and top officials of the current Lagos government visited the destruction areas for "on-the-spot assessment."
