According to Mohammed “We are here to commiserate with the Nigerian Ports Authority and as lawmakers ,see the extent of damage done by persons who hijacked a peaceful protest to destroy government properties.
“We have advised the NPA management to adjust its 2020 budget and include cost for the repairs which we shall consider” he said.

She added that insurance firms are not expected to bear the full cost of the damage to the building and other properties of NPA.
The building in Marina Lagos,was attacked and set on fire by yet to be identified persons on October 21, 2020 during the #EndSARS protests against police brutality across cities in Nigeria
