Lawmaker representing Lagos State’s Amuwo Odofin 1 constituency, Mojisola Alli-Macaulay, said most young Nigerians are drugged all the time.
Alli-Macaulay said this during a plenary at the Lagos State Assembly on looting and pandemonium, following the End SARS protest which was hijacked by thugs.
She warned that the National Guidance Agency (NOA) must help change the attitude of young people.
The lawmaker said: “The National Guidance Agency must get to work. We need to start orienting our young people. They need people who can talk to them from time to time.
“They’re drugged all the time, most of them. They go on social media and say all kinds of things. “
Alli-Macaulay argued that unemployment should not be an excuse for looting, stating that “I was educated in the UK and saw a lot of young people who had no jobs but who did not become thugs ”.
