Two years after former Governor of Lagos state Akinwunmi Ambode commissioned a statue of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti at Allen Avenue in Ikeja, the monument has been pulled by the state’s government.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s spokesperson, Gboyega Akosile who confirmed that the effigy has been pulled down, said the roundabout where the effigy was situated made the list of four roundabouts identified by the current administration as the major cause of gridlock in the state.
