Governor Okezie Ikpeazu calls on parents to appeal to rampaging youths


Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has once again called on parents, guardians and relevant stakeholders in the State and the nation to appeal to rampaging youths and protesters to stop further destruction of lives and properties.

Dr lkpeazu made the call when he received the DIG in charge of ICT, Police Headquarters, Abuja and Supervising DIG South East Zone, Mr Celestine Okoye, and his team who are in the State to ascertain the level of damage in the aftermaths of the End SARS protest.

The Governor noted that the destruction of monuments and edifices of historic significance, as well as government and private properties, was a self-inflicted injury that will take government time and resources to repair and restore.

He lamented that the seemingly peaceful End SARS protest took a violent dimension when mayhem was unleashed in the State, listing some of the properties destroyed to include the Aba Town Hall, Aba South LGA headquarters, Revenue Offices, TIMASS Office, financial institutions, onion market, Court houses, private and public establishments that offer employment to thousands of Abia citizens.
