Must Nigerian Politicians Use Thugs? by lukaino(m): 2:44pm On Mar 25, 2015
Young people are recruited by politicians and their parties. These are usually hot blooded undergraduates who are mostly cultists. These guys are armed by politicians for the purpose attacking political opponents.

We have seen cases where people peceived as political rivals are killed, properties destroyed and they are used to snatch ballot boxes on election days for election manipulation amongst others.
The disturbing thing is that most (if not all) political parties in Nigeria have & use thugs.
Budgets are created for purpose of arming them.
If thuggery is an integral part of party structure in Nigeria, why do politicians always want to make us believe that they do not suppport violence or preach peace during politicking.

Are they trying to tell us that it is not possible to play clean, violence free politics in Nigeria?
