Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has ordered the demolition of statues of Afro maestro, Fela Anikulapo Kuti built by the immediate past administration of Akinwunmi Ambode.

The statue was unveiled in honour of the late Afrobeat icon at Allen roundabout in Ikeja, capital of the state, in 2017.

Sanwo-Olu has identified the roundabout as one of the busy spots in the state.

The other roundabouts are at Ikotun, Lekki-Epe expressway and Maryland.

Gboyega Akosile, spokesman of the governor, told TheCable on Monday that the artwork will be relocated to an area where it won’t cause traffic.
