Remains of burnt Lagos High Court under demolition

By Francis IWUCHUKWU

The remains of the High Court of Lagos State sitting in Igbosere, Nigeria, that was burnt during the #EndSARS protest on October 21, 2020, is now under demolition.

The demolition exercise is being executed under the supervision of the Lagos State Rebuilding Trust Fund.

In executing the demolition of the burnt court, two excavators were specifically seen pulling down the remains of the court, said to be Nigeria’s oldest and most recognisable judicial building.

It would be recalled that during the protest, hoodlums made their way onto the premises, carting away computers, printers, files, fans, air conditioners and other items. They eventually set the building ablaze before fleeing.

The hoodlums also destroyed the nearby Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, the world-class Forensic DNA Centre (West Africa’s first), police stations, and other public and private infrastructure across Lagos.
