Former governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has said there is nothing like police brutality in Nigeria.
According to him, police brutality is a situation of youths brutalising youths, because the policemen accused of brutality is also a young person and his actions are out of frustration.
Okorocha was speaking at a world press conference where he declared his ambition to run for president in 2023, on Monday.
He said, “Someone asked me, ‘what will you do about #EndSARS, about policy brutality?’ I said to him, there is nothing like police brutality; what we have are youths brutalising youths out of frustration. The policeman that brutalised his brother on the street did so not because he’s a police; he did so because he’s a young man frustrated.”
His said under his government, the youths will be the bedrock of the country’s economy, adding that he will ensure that they are self-employed.
