Speaking during the session, Gbadebo stated, “We are making a list of the people who enabled and perpetuated violence”
He went further to say, “There was no election in Lagos state. It was violent at multiple levels physically and diabolic.
“My dear Lagosians, our enemies are not our neighbours or our visitors or fellow Lagosians. Our common enemy is violence, insecurity, poverty, stagnation, corruption and underdevelopment.”
