A stakeholder, Mazi Francis Uzoma, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Councillorship aspirant for the December 18th Abia LGA election said that acts like vandalism is not the best way for any sane person to express anger.

“I’m a youth, Nigerian youths protested against SARS, but I don’t know how our LGA Secretariat, our Town Hall and other vandalized property had connection with  SARS. We’re not happy with what we’re seeing. The situation is very annoying.

“This is one of the reasons I’m into politics. We need to do things right as youths and support our leaders to enable us make proper changes not this level of violence here. What took place here is unacceptable.”
