Amaechi Vows To Go After Hoodlums Who Burnt the NPA Headquarters

Mr Rotimi Amaechi, the Nigerian Minister of transportation has maintained that there is every need to go after the thugs who set the Nigerian Ports Authority Headquarters in Lagos ablaze.

While speaking during a visit to the facility on Sunday, November 22, the former Governor of Rivers state admitted that protests are legitimate but condemned those who hide under the guise of demonstrations to destroy public and private properties.

Amaechi Tweeted;

We toured the @nigerianports H/Q today & it wasn’t a good sight. If people are arrested for the crime perpetrated, they will not do it again. We have to go after the hoodlums & ensure they pay.

“We toured the H/Q today & it wasn’t a good sight. If people are arrested for the crime perpetrated, they will not do it again. We have to go after the hoodlums & ensure they pay.

“The right to protest is defined in the laws of the land, it doesn’t include burning people’s private houses and public assets that belong to every Nigerian.”

Amaechi also stated that the damage is as disastrous as he recalled being part of protests as a student. He then noted that they did not take the laws into their hands during those demonstrations.
