The statue of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti at Allen Avenue in Ikeja, is no more after it was pulled down by the Lagos State Government.
Just two years after the statue was commissioned by the then Governor of the state, Akinwunmi Ambode, the state government has pulled down the monument.

Gboyega Akosile said the roundabout where the statue was situated made the list of four roundabouts identified by the current administration as the major cause of gridlock in the state.
