Former Imo State governor and the senator representing Imo West senatorial district, Rochas Okorocha while speaking with newsmen in Abuja said the lifestyles of the politicians are provoking the youths.
He said the #EndSARS protest is not just targeted at the police but also a reaction to years of bad leadership, joblessness and poverty in Nigeria.
He called on the political elite to sacrifice from their salaries and allowances as a way of alleviating the sufferings of the youths.
“What started a few days ago as a peaceful protest has escalated into losing many souls and burning properties with people living in fears. This situation is very unfortunate and highly regrettable. I want to sympathise with those that have lost their loved ones due to the protests,” he said.
