Also, 29 divisional police stations and 17 police posts were razed by hoodlums who hijacked the protest.

Governor Sanwo-Olu also made the offer to take the bill of replacing the logistics lost by the police when he visited the Command Headquarters in Ikeja to boost the morale of officers.

He said the statutory duties of the police could not be wished away because of the actions of a few bad eggs, noting the impact of the police officers’ absence on the roads was generally felt by residents.

Sanwo-Olu added that the state must put the event of the past week behind it and move on to restore peace across the communities.

To achieve this, police officers, he said, must regain their confidence. Governor Sanwo-Olu said his administration would also compensate family members of the officers killed in the violence and foot their funeral bills.

He said Lagos would also pick the hospital bills of those injured in the mayhem just as he disclosed plans to ensure police officers serving in Lagos get life insurance.
