Several #EndSAR protesters were injured on Saturday when Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola car was attacked in Osogbo, the state capital.
An eyewitness disclosed to Western Post that security officers attached to the state governor shoot into the air, leading to protestors scramble for life with several getting injured.
The governor had marched with hundreds of protesters campaigning against police brutality and calling for the disbandment of the notorious police unit, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
While addressing thousands of protesters who had earlier converged at Olaiya, Governor Oyetola said the young people have spoken loud and clear and would have their interest protected by the government.
He apologised to the youths for coming late to address them.
The governor said he was out of the state before and he just came back about an hour ago.
“I want to tender my unreserved apologize to the youths for my inability to address you before now, I was out of the state .
Oyetola who commended the protesting youths for displaying ethos of Omoluabi and for comporting themselves peacefully during the cause of their protest said he also condemned the action of the SARS Personnels , adding that they were saddled with the responsibilies of protecting the citizens not to kill them.
“The excesses of the SARS Personnels are too much and they have to be checkmated. So I agree with you and we understand your plights.
The Governror debunked the allegation making the round that he sent hoodlums to attack the #EndSARS protesters , saying he was out of the state and he never sent anybody to attack Protesters.
