Assa youths are at it again, always looking for reasons to attack and destroy progress and development coming into the community.
From an Eye witness account, on Tuesday 11th February, angry youths were sighted at the ongoing massive building destroyed and looted Lee Engineering facilities, a Nigerian company working for Shell in Assa North/Ohaji South Gas Primary Treatment Facility Project in Assa”
According to the report, the youths who have been looking for reasons to attack the ongoing work found one after two of their natives who were employed by the company came to work signed in and left their work premises back to their community, which has become their regular routine despite all warnings. That faithful day, on their way coming back on a motorcycle the was a burning bush where a huge smoke was oozing out from to the road, they ran into an incoming tipper and the tipper crushed them to death. This is happening outside the work premises.
An opportunity they say comes but once, the youths who were already waiting to attack the ongoing work used the death of the two workers as an excuse to attack, destroying and looting what they could carry.
When are we going to learn?
When are we going to stop blocking progress movements?
When are we going to stop thinking about today and start thinking of tomorrow?
Think of tomorrow whenever you are tempted to start a fight today, it’s not about you today, it’s about a better tomorrow for our kids, a better place with peace and development.
