Former governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has said there is nothing like police brutality in Nigeria.

According to him, what is referred to as police brutality is a situation where youths are brutalising youths, because the policeman accused of brutality is also a young person and his actions are borne out of frustration.

Okorocha was speaking at a world press conference where he declared his ambition to run for president in 2023, on Monday.

He said, “Someone asked me, ‘What will you do about #EndSARS, about policy brutality?” I said to him, there is nothing like police brutality; what we have are youths brutalising youths out of frustration. The policeman that brutalised his brother on the street did so not because he’s a policeman; he did so because he’s a young man frustrated.”

His said under his government, the youths would be the bedrock of the country’s economy, adding that he would ensure that they were self-employed.
