Theo Lawson, an architect and visionary from Lagos, Nigeria had a vision to transform the colonial prison on Broad Street, Lagos to a symbol of freedom. This prison was used by the British colonial masters to torture, imprison and hang in the gallows those that opposed colonial rule of Nigeria including Herbert Macaulay, Chief Cbafemi Awolowo, Chief Michael Imodu, Sir Adeyemo Alakija & more. It takes someone like Tunde Fashola, Gov. of Lagos state a man I have come to respect not for what i have heard but have been privileged to experience to create this symbol of Freedom in the heart of Lagos.
