1 Mins read

Adewale, representing Ifako-Ijaye Constituency 1 in Lagos House of Assembly, made this known to newsmen in Lagos on Friday.

Mr Temitope Adewale, a Lagos lawmaker, says he has earmarked N10 million emergency relief fund for victims of the EndSARS clash at Fagba area of the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that there was bloody violence, burning and looting in Ifako-Ijaiye area this week under the guise of #EndSARS protest.

Adewale said that the fund was to give respite to victims of the sad occurrence which claimed many lives in Fagba, Iju and Abattoir areas of Ifako-Ijaye, Lagos

“It is with deep sorrow in my heart and in regret I speak with you because over the last decade we have struggled with infrastructure development and now we have burnt down the little we have.

”Since the beginning of 2020, we have managed to be our brothers keeper and we survived through the COVID-19.

” One Million Boys attack, NNPC Explosion, Iju/Ogundimu Gas Explosion and now the EndSARS clash which metamorphosed to tribal dispute in our community.

“Sadly, lives were lost and and lots of property were destroyed. The last three days event has added another dark days to our history in Ifako Ijaiye.

“I have therefore set up a N10 million Emergency Relief Fund as compensation and redevelopment of our community.

“This might not be able to adequately compensate for lives lost and property, but would go a long way in rebuilding our community,” he said.
