The Rivers State Chapter Chairman of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, Chijioke Ihunwo has reacted to criticisms against him over his failure to participate in the just concluded #EndSARS protest the state.
It is worthy to note that some members of the Civil Society Groups in the state are not happy that Governor Nyesom Wike appointed Chijioke Ihunwo as a member of the Commission of Inquiry to investigate human rights abuses by operatives of the disbanded Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS in Rivers State.
But reacting to this, Chijioke Ihunwo told Brave Views in an interview that he could not personally participate in the #EndSARS protest because he was on a trip to Abuja at the time of the protest.
However, he said he has been vocal in speaking against the alleged evil activities of SARS operatives in the state.
The youth leader, Chijioke Ihunwo further said, despite the fact that he was not in Port Harcourt during the days of the protest, he issued a media statement in support of the protests carried out by the youths in the state.
