Minister Of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi Says Those Who Destroyed Public Property Must Face The Law

Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has condemned the destructions that followed the peaceful End SARS protest in October.
he said the perpetrators must face the law.

“If we don’t punish those who caused these damages, others may do it again,” he said on Sunday.

Amaechi spoke during an assessment of the damages at the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) headquarters in Lagos..

“This is completely disastrous. It is not enough to vent your anger about police brutality in this manner. How does damaging government property concern the police? Whether you like it or not, this will be refurbished or rebuilt with government funds.

”That means the funds also belong to those who have set this place ablaze. Those who commit crime should be held liable and appropriate punishment meted out on them. I was a student from 1983 to 1987, that was a period when the Nigerian students were always out on the streets, we never burnt down anything.

“The rights to protest is defined in the laws of Nigeria, it doesn’t include burning peoples houses or places, it doesn’t include blocking major highways or minor roads. The law said you should protest by the side of the road, it didn’t say you should protest and block the roads because there are other road users.

“I may not like police brutality and I didn’t protest. It is legitimate to protest but it is illegitimate to take other people’s rights. The rights to protest is defined in the constitution but it does not include burning people’s houses and government properties”, Amaechi stressed.

  5. Those that destroyed govt n privates should be arrested n dealt with... That's if they can fish them out.

    They should investigate and fish out those that told the touts to attack the peaceful protesters. If they're able to fish them out, they can as well get those hoodlums and deal with them, because our leaders hate TRUTH esp those from the North.

  6. I really like you sir, please don't annoy me this morning. OK let's agree they will face the law, but how about your fellow polithiefcians?

    We have not heard that James Nwafor or his trigger happy colleague that gunned down a vendor last week has been arrested and prosecuted.
