The Governorship Candidate of Action Alliance (AA) in the 2019 election in Imo State, Uche Nwosu has reacted to the Tuesday night massacre at the Lekki Toll Gate, in Lagos State.
Nwosu who is the son-in-law of Senator Rochas Okorocha, a former Imo State Governor, lamented the killing of Young Nigerians, there was “absolutely no justification to open fire on these innocent patriots, fighting for a better Nigeria for all of us.”
Taking to his Facebook page on Wednesday, Nwosu wrote:
“I am greatly troubled by the unfortunate turn of events, especially in the Center of Excellence, where pictures of our national flag stained in the blood of patriotic youths are emanating from.
“There is absolutely no justification to open fire on these innocent patriots, fighting for a better Nigeria for all of us, and I call on relevant authorities to ensure that not even a single person involved in this murderous tyranny is spared from the full wrath of the law.
“I sympathize with the families of these great martyrs of the struggle and pray for a quick recovery to all those injured in the course of the struggle. I also appeal for quick and adequate reparations to be made to businessmen and women, especially in Apo, Abuja, and other parts of the country whose goods were destroyed by hooligans as a result of these protests.
“Let me restate my call to our great Nigerian youths who have been on the streets in the last two weeks to protest against police brutality, police reform and other issues bedevilling our nation, to retreat and dialogue with the authorities as it has become obvious that criminal and subversive elements have infiltrated their ranks in order to wreck havoc and discredit these genuine struggles for a better Nigeria.”
