Some hoodlums who were on rampage in Lagos state, have reportedly defaced the statue of late Obafemi Awolowo located in Ikeja area of the state. 

 

The hoodlums removed the statue's iconic glasses amid attack on some of Nigeria's symbols of history. 

 

Recall that the monument of Nnamdi Azikwe had also been attacked by hoodlums in Anambra state. 

 

The Awolowo statue was erected during the administration of former Lagos governor Akinwumi Ambode, in recognition of the late former lawyer, nationalist's contribution to the country's democracy.

 

Here are photos of the defaced Awolowo statue;
