Over the last weekend alone, many public corporations and private warehouses have also been reportedly looted by these set of hoodlums almost all over Nigeria. The Naijauto team is using this medium to encourage all Nigerian youths to desist from any form of violence or destruction of public and private properties during protests. Such attitudes and actions are not effective in getting the government to listen or yield to the demands of protesting masses. Let’s be wise!!!
