Youths in Rivers State have threatened to stage a protest against continued harassment by security agents.
A leader, Rivers State chapter of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, Chijioke Ihunwo who condemned the action of some police officers in the State, called on security chiefs to advise the officers under them.
He lamented over an incident in Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Local Government Area of the state where he claimed that youths were on a “legitimate protest for employment and the military and other security agents started attacking them”.
“I think it is bad and we want to condemn them”, he added.
Ihunwo also called on the security agencies to apologize to Rivers youths over the incident.
The youth leader also called on Rivers youths to remain patient while they continue to talk with the commissioner of police and other relevant agencies.
He, however, threatened that “if nothing is done we are going to occupy the military facility in Port Harcourt. I think they are not above the law.
“What they are doing is bad and we must condemn it. If they don’t apologize, we are going to occupy their premises”.
