Veteran entertainer, Charles Oputa popularly known as Charly Boy, has said that the level of lawlessness in Nigeria is outrageous.
Speaking to PUNCH on Friday ahead of Ekiti gubernatorial elections where scenes of violence have attracted global attention, the Area Fada as he is fondly referred to by many for often speaking out for oppressed persons and groups, said that until citizens change their attitudes, things might not improve in Nigeria.
He said, “There seems to be an obnoxious lawlessness even from those who parade themselves as leaders, adapting to a different rule of play as against what is constitutionally right.
“The people at the helm of affairs did not come to do democracy with us, they are not concerned about our constitutional rights; everybody is on their own, there is a serious case of injustice in the country and all the regions are affected.
“Until like minds come together and to something about it, this evil will persist.”
