Desmond Olusola Elliot, a Nollywood Actor and member of Lagos State House of Assembly has narrated what he has been facing from the youths especially in Lagos over his comment during the EndSars protest.
The talented actor caught the anger of Nigerian Youths when he refered to EndSars protesters as children while presenting a paper at the floor of the house.
The statement has refused to sit well with many Nigerian youths since then and has promised to deal with him through his re-election bid in 2023.
Speaking on the development on Friday while appearing on Your View, a TVC breakfast programme, the actor turned politician decried the level of hatred meted on him by the youths.
He said he cannot walk on the street without being verbally abused since that time.
The lawmaker who represents Surulere Constituency at the state Assembly is seeking for re-election to the house to renew his mandate.
He is however being hunted by the statement he made in 2020.
