"Lagos state government then comes to give a 7days notice for demolition.
"And today, they demolished buildings in the area including my mom's shop without compensation."

He tweeted:

"In the middle of the pandemic.
"Again there is a consistent pattern of wickedness of the ruling party, a general lack of consideration or care for the Nigerian citizen both at the national and state levels."
