The governor of Abia state, Okezie Ikpeazu, paid a solidarity visit to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at his office just like his southwest counterparts following the attacks on facilities in Lagos state by suspected thugs wreaking havoc under the guise of #EndSARS protest.
Legit.ng gathered that Ikpeazu, who commiserated with Sanwo-Olu said criminals who carried out the coordinated attacks orchestrated the violence to hurt the whole country.
Sanwo-Olu's chief press secretary, Gboyega Akosile, made the disclosure in a series of tweets on Wednesday, November 11.
The Abia state governor described the attacks as an injury to all because the most populous state in West Africa is home to all Nigerians irrespective of their tribe, language, or religion.
Ikpeazu while thanking Sanwo-Olu for protecting Igbo owned businesses and properties during the EndSARS violence, called on all Nigerians as well to condemn the attacks.
Meanwhile, Sanwo-Olu received a solidarity visit at the Lagos House, Alausa, on Wednesday, from indigenes of the southeast and south-south region living in the state.
The Igbo leaders, led by Joe Igbokwe, the governor’s special adviser on drainage and water resources, pledged their loyalty to the people and government of Lagos.
Otunba Isaac Emiyade, the south-south leader in Lagos on his part said he has never witnessed public protests with so much destruction of properties since 1977 when he lived in Lagos.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Governor Sanwo-Olu said his government would need N1 trillion to rebuild the state following wanton destructions.
The governor made this known when the speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, paid him a solidarity visit on Sunday, October 25, in his Marina office.
Sanwo-Olu said the state is in dilemma considering the massive destruction, but expressed hope that Lagos will heal and come back stronger.
