EndSARS Riots: Sanwo-Olu In TVC, Consoles Management And Staff by Lanrelagboi: 8:02pm On Oct 29, 2020
Station Boss: ‘We’re Traumatised By Rioters’

The broad hole left on the double-layer wall of the central studio of the Television Continental (TVC) told the extent of the wreck inflicted on the station.

No thanks to the arsonists who invaded the TV station located in Ikosi area of Lagos State in the wake of the violence that erupted last week in the State.

Transmission gadgets, state-of-the-art studios, production rooms and operational vehicles, all gone up in flames by the time the hoodlums left the station’s premises.

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Thursday, visited the management and staff of the TV station to console them over the incident.

TVC’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Andrew Hanlon, led top management staff of the media organisation to receive Sanwo-Olu and his team, among which included the Deputy Governor, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, Deputy Chief of Staff, Mr. Gboyega Soyannwo, and Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotoso.

Hanlon took the Governor round the main auditorium, which was the hub of the TV station’s operation. It was completely razed.

The auditorium housed three main studios, three control rooms, three master control rooms and central transmission laboratory said to have been equipped with the modern communication gadgets worth millions of dollars.

All left in the building were charred materials.

The TV station boss told Sanwo-Olu that more than 250 production staff working in the razed building had been out of work since the incident happened. He added that over 500 direct employees of the station had been struggling to work in temporary accommodation put up by the company.

Hanlon said: “After the rioters invaded our premises and set the place on fire, some buildings in the premises survived. But the main transmission building is completely destroyed and it was the hub of our operations. The rioters cast fear and terror in the hearts of our employees when they broke in last week’s Wednesday morning.

“People’s hard work and huge investment that went down into the TV station were destroyed in a period of about an hour. The incident was really traumatising for all of us. The rioters left immense devastation. The entire interior of the building was destroyed. This is all that is left of our bubbling building, which was a centrepiece. Thankfully, no member of staff died in the incident.”
Hanlon said the immediate priority before the management of the TV station was to ensure that all direct employees were looked after, stressing that the means of livelihood of thousands of indirect workers attached to the brand had been threatened.

He said efforts were being taken to return TVC back to its full operations, promising that the station would bounce back stronger than it was.

The Governor was also shown a wreck of burnt vehicles belonging to the station and employees.

Someone was instructed to break up the protest and get compensated. That person brought unknown soldier and dispersed the protest, then burnt a lot of infrastructure down, his own investment was also destroyed to make it seem he was a victim.

I didn't mention names o. grin

Sanwo-olu should have instead used this opportunity to visit hundreds of families of Lekki shooting victims to confess his roles in this carnage but he chose to visit his Master's TV station. Pathetic

The government should do their part.

It is not difficult if greed and insincerity are not in the picture.

All these events in the world are similar to birth pangs. The world is in labour.... because change is coming.

A new kingdom is coming. Jesus is coming to reign.

He is coming in fury to punish the unjust and the wicked.

I have hope of eternity with him. I will not be punished but rather, I will be rewarded.

Why?

Because he took my place on the cross. I Acknowledged this and I do whatever he asks me to do.

You?

Run......The Cup of fury of the almighty is full... ready to be poured.

In the new kingdom, I will participate.

You?

Don't deceive yourself. If you don't accept his sacrifice, obey and do his will, you are condemned already.

I didn't say this. Jesus did.

I just pity d Sanwo olu guy. His hands are too tied. He would have rejected the post if he had d slightest idea.. Politics aside, I just developed a likeness for the guy since d protest started. How he has a thick skin for abuses and insults from protesters. Even had time to engage then. It's just so unfortunate

In as much I don't support destruction of private and public properties. I will encourage the government to look into the agitation of youths and stop apportion blame whatsoever. Youths know why they are clamouring good change but it seems this government is dumb and blind.
