The Governor stated this in a tweet, via his official Twitter account.

According to Okowa, “Peaceful protests are a necessary part of the democratic process and the citizens have the right to express their grievances.

“As young people across Delta State continue to express their legitimate grievances in this manner, I ask that they remain calm and law-abiding at all times.

“I also request that the Police allow them to express themselves and refrain from using brute force in responding to these protests.

“Going forward, we shall continue to engage with all relevant stakeholders to reform the Nigeria Police Force in a manner that makes it more professional, disciplined, and accountable to the people,” he tweeted.
