How #Endsars Protesters destroyed Lagos fire truck – Official
The Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service has alleged that one of its emergency trucks was damaged by some #ENDSARS protesters in Lagos State .
The agency made this known in a statement on Wednesday titled ‘ #EndSARS : Protesters damage Lagos fire engine truck’ .
Acting Head of the agency , Mrs . Margaret Adeseye , said the incident happened on Tuesday at Alausa, Ikeja area of the state .
She expressed dissatisfaction at the “ unprovoked attack on the truck used daily to assist and support Lagosians in emergency situations” .
She said that “ the fire engine truck was on its way from Salvation Street , Opebi , where it had been deployed to put out a fire in the morning , en route to another emergency call at 10 , Thomas Adeboye Street , Olowoira in Ojodu , before it was attacked by some of the protesters .
“ The distress call to Olowoira was received at about 12 .08 hrs and the Alausa fire truck was en -route the scene from Opebi, where it had just concluded an operation before it was attacked and damaged by some protesters. ”
While maintaining that the Fire Engine Truck was still able to attend to the occurrence at Olowoira despite the attack and damage by the protesters , Adeseye advised Lagosians to “ stop destroying government property since the cost will eventually be borne by the taxpayers in the State ” .
