Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has pulled down a statue of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti on Allen Avenue, in the Ikeja area of the state.

According to report, the administration of Babajide Sanwo-Olu says Fela’s statue is located at one of the four roundabouts which it has identified as a major cause of gridlock in the state

The Allen roundabout where Fela's statue was mounted, is one of those roundabouts.

Similar roundabouts have been pulled down in Lekki and elsewhere in the metropolis to expand narrow roads and ease congestion.

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

Gboyega Akosile, spokesman of the governor, on Monday said that the statue will be relocated to an area where it won’t cause traffic, theCable reports.
