Osun Gov. debunks claims #EndSARS protesters attacked him, says political thugs were responsible

The Governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola has blamed political thugs for attacks on his convoy while addressing the #EndSARS protesters in Osogbo, the state capital on Saturday.

This is coming after news spread claiming the governor was attacked by the protesters.

Oyetola debunked the claims during a state broadcast saying suspected political thugs attacked him at the scene of the protest at Olaiya Junction and not youths protesting brutality by the defunct SARS operatives.

He said the incident would be investigated to bring the perpetrators to book.

“The attempt which was carried out by political thugs was pre-planned and our government shall investigate the matter with a view to bringing the perpetrators of this heinous act to book.

“As the Chief Security Officer of the state, we shall ensure that lives and properties of our people shall be protected and anybody found culpable of causing unrest shall be made to face the wrath of the law.”

Meanwhile, the state police command confirmed the death of two people during the attack.
