Saying that the idle youths have resorted to drinking spirited alcohol and drugs which are motivational for criminality ,rapping and kidnappings ,
adding that alcohol business is booming every where said chief Gomna.
‘ I took a walk one day around my area and saw one okade man, I asked him if he was okada man because he look different , he said yes ,I then told him that he look different he told me that he was a graduate for five years and is married with children and without job that is why he is managing okada to survive .
Chief Gomna said ,this kind of man will be easily converted to criminality at a very low cost , because he has family to feed.”said chief Gomna.
He therefore appealed to the federal government to do something urgently because the lives of the people are in danger as nobody is save .
