“Who is deceiving the youths of South East? Markets are being destroyed, landmark statues at Otigba Junction and elsewhere in Enugu state has been destroyed. Is that #EndSARS or Police brutality? Why destroy what is in your state under the guise of protest?
“The bodies that are piling up are ours, the cars being destroyed are ours, the shops looted are ours, the institutions destroyed are all ours.
