Comrade Sylvester Obiora, the Chairman of Tricycles Owners Association of Nigeria (TOAN ), the umbrella body of commercial ‘Keke’ operators in Anambra State, has lauded her members for conducting themselves well during the #End SARS protests.
Comrade Obiora, however, warned that ‘keke’ drivers should never be part of the protesters, who have resorted to arson and looting of public and private property.
He said this has become necessary given that the ENDSARS protests have been hijacked and taken over by miscreants and hoodlums, who have abandoned the motive of the protest.
He stressed that commercial tricycle operators are respected and responsible people, who will not engage in wanton destructive behaviour as witnessed during the recent ENDSARS protests across the nation.”
Obiora enjoined the members of the union to go about their normal business without fear of molestation, since they operate within the confines of the law and to ensure they remain safe.
The Chairman also commended the amiable Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano and the Commissioner for Transport, Chief Afam Mbanefo for their professionalism in handling the security situation of the State, especially in maintaining a clean record that no protester was injured or killed as obtained in other places.
