Senator Nicholas Tofowomo, representing Ondo South Senatorial District at the National Assembly, has commenced reconstruction of the Okitipupa Divisional Police Station that was destroyed during last year’s EndSARS protest.
Tofowomo’s media aide, Mr Olumide Akinrinlola, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Okitipupa as bulldozers and workers started demolishing the burnt structures.
