He said hoodlums have taken advantage of the protest to loot shop and businesses in the state capital, hence, their decision to provide adequate security for protesters and residents of the state.

According to him, the hunters would not only join the protest, but also parade streets of the state to ensure that hoodlums were prevented from extorting and looting the public.

He promised to ensure that the protest is not hijacked and called on the governor to bring those who attacked protesters last week to justice.
