It was reported that some lives were lost and property worth billions of Naira were destroyed since Monday, October 19, when the protest was said to have been hijacked by some hoodlums.

The president had on Thursday, October 22, banned all the protests across the country and asked the protesting youths to engage the governments on how the problem would be totally solved.

Nigerians, however, took to their social media pages some minutes after the presidential broadcast to x-ray the speech and expressed their concerns over the address.
