The protesters were seen carrying different placards while chanting solidarity songs.

The Lagos Youth Vanguard protesters were seen distributing leaflets to Journalists which stated the former Lagos state Governor,  “deliberately laid landmine through the obvious improper, inappropriate and insufficient content in his handover note that should serve as a guide to the incoming administration in the tradition of every civilized public officer.”

The leaflet also reads;

“We call for his probe and investigation with a view to apportioning penalty and dishing out appropriate penalties.

“We want to assure the good people of Lagos State, including all the people that care about Lagos and the people of Lagos that we will continue to pursue every legitimate means until justice is done”

The Patron of the group of Protesters, Mr. Olokooba who spoke to Journalists, said the group has made findings that Ambode was sabotaging Sanwo-olu’s administration after observing events for the past 90 days.

“For every government that is going out, you leave a template for the coming government to succeed.

“Ambode handed over a very rickety handing over note that cannot assist the current administration.

“If you go round the state today you will see that there is no governor that would inherit such state and the people of the state would be happy with him, but thank God the goodwill enjoyed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is still intact if not, by now the people of Lagos State would have been complaining bitterly.

“Put all these things together and add it to what the EFCC said recently that they were going to conduct an investigation into the activities of the former governor Akinwunmi Ambode, you would see that we are right,”

“Also, the parliament has promised us that they were going to look into the activities of the last administration, but we have not heard anything from them.

Mr. Olokooba who mentioned he is a faithful taxpayer, called on the former Governor to give a proper account n how he managed resources during his tenure as Governor.

“I am a taxpayer, I pay education tax, I pay the salaries of the Governor from my tax and I must be concerned about how the money is being spent likewise other Nigerians.

“The former governor must be accountable for how he ran the affairs of the state in the last four years. We want him to clear his name. Gone are the days when people just hear of probe and you don’t take it up,”

The representatives of the Lagos state House of Assembly, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa and Hon. Rotimi Olowo addressed the Protesters, sying it was indeed within the limits of their constitutional right to protest.

They assured the protesters that investigations into the Ambode administration had already commenced,
