Between October 8 and 23, youths in Lagos trooped out to demand an end to police brutality.

They were joined by their counterparts across the nation.

However, hoodlums hijacked the protests, wreaking havoc on private properties and public institutions.

The palace of the Oba of Lagos, Igbosere High Court, Nigeria Police Authority (NPA) building, police stations among others were looted and/or set ablaze.

A warehouse storing COVID-19 palliatives was also set ablaze in the Mazamaza area of the state.

Sanwo-Olu estimated that it would cost the state N1 trillion to replace destroyed properties.
