The spokesman to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Gboyega Akosile revealed that the statue was pulled down because the roundabout where it was located was identified as one of the four locations in Lagos that cause traffic gridlock.

He also stated that the statue will be moved to a location that doesn’t experience traffic gridlock.
