He said the appearances of these mentally ill persons and the offensive odours oozing from them are unappealing.
“They’ve have turned some of the parks allegedly built with several millions of naira by former Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan’s Administration into their places of abode. Many of them even sleep along major roads while their abodes are never a site to behold. Many times, they constitute environmental hazards and nuisance to lives, property and health of Deltans. These lunatics attack and injure innocent citizens with dangerous weapons including bottles and other sharp objects. They also collect foods forcefully from petty traders around,” he disclosed.
The residents blamed Delta State Government’s lukewarm attitude towards the influx of lunatics into the city of Warri and its environs.
