The entire roundabout was pulled down to allow for free flow of traffic. Fela’s statue was not the target as the OP is trying to portray.

Im not a tribalist but...
Afonja and south westerners have no respect and appreciation for fela.

Normally... fela statue shouldn't be removed cox of traffic.
Instead the traffic should be removed because of fela statue
