We Have To Go After The Hoodlums And Ensure They Pay” – Rotimi Amaechi Reacts After Visiting Burnt NPA Headquarters

Rotimi Amaechi, Nigeria’s transport minister, has said it is necessary to go after the thugs who set fire to the Nigerian Port Authority headquarters in Lagos.

Speaking during a visit to the facility on Sunday, November 22, the former Rivers State Governor admitted that the protests are legitimate, but condemned those hiding under the guise of demonstrations to destroy public and private property.

Amaechi tweeted;

“We did a tour of the H / Q today and it was not a good sight. If people are arrested for the crime perpetrated, they will not do it again. We have to hunt down the bullies and make sure they pay.

“The right to protest is defined in the laws of the country, it does not include burning people’s private homes and public property that belongs to all Nigerians.”

Amaechi also described the damage as disastrous as he recalled being part of the protests when he was a student. However, he noted that they did not take the laws into their hands during those demonstrations.
