Political Thugs, Not EndSARS Protesters Attacked Me – Gov Oyetola

Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, has said the attack on him while addressing #EndSARS protesters in Osogbo on Saturday, was pre-planned by political party thugs.


The governor also accused those he described as political thugs of attacking him while exonerating genuine EndSARS youths.

He said this in a state broadcast in Osogbo on Sunday, with a promise to investigate and bring to book those behind the attack.


Two persons were reportedly shot dead during the attack which happened at the popular Olaiya Junction, Osogbo while the governor was ferried to safety.

He said, “The attempt which was carried out by political thugs was pre-planned and our government shall investigate the matter with a view of 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.”
