#EndSARS Protest: Omisore, SDP, Oluwo Condemn Attack On Gov Oyetola’s Convoy

Former chairman of senate appropriation committee, Senator Iyiola Omisore, Osun State Social Democratic Party (SDP) and Oluwo of Iwo, HRM Oba Abdurasheed Akanbi have all condemned the attack on the convoy of Governor Gboyega Oyetola, by the hoodlums when he addressed the EndSARS protesters  in Osogbo on Saturday, describing it as barbaric.

Omisore said such ugly incident was not healthy for the love shown by Governor Oyetola who chose to identify with the protesters. 

Chairman of SDP,  Dr Sola Oladeinde, described the attack as indecent, barbaric and inhuman, adding that attacking the governor will not solve the problem of the endsars saga.

Also, Oba Abdurasheed maintains that the circumstances that warranted the attack was questionable, saying only recalcitrant leaders, unlike the listening Oyetola could deserve such.

He appealed to protesting youth most especially in Osun to act within the ambit of law to protect human lives and properties.

A statement by the Monarch’s press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, reads “As a patriotic ambassador of The State of Virtues, the ethos must always be demonstrated in us. Many state governors have joined the protest and addressed protesters. There was no cases of attack. I’m sure many governors will still address their citizen on the same issue. What credit are hoodlums  given to Osun?”. He asked.

Dr Oladeinde said the governor as a true democrat and People’s governor, walked down with EndSars customized face cap on him, and joined the teeming protesters in protest. Having addressed them, the violence broke out and the sponsored hoodlums and miscreants among them started their attack by throwing stones, shooting sparodically, using cutlasses and other dangerous weapons to the extent that almost all official vehicles conveying the governor and all his entourage were seriously vandalized.

He stressed that osun state belong to everyone of us, that thuggery will not help us in anyway, he admonished the citizens of the state to rally round the governor in salvaging the state from the financial crisis.

He lamented that the governor is trying his best. we can only achieve our goals in peaceful and conducive atmosphere.

The Chairman therefore called on Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu as well as Director of State Security (DSS) to investigate the pre-arranged assassination attempt on the life of Governor Gboyega Oyetola and his convoy and ensure that all perpetrators of the attack and their sponsors were brought to book in no distant time.

“What an ungrateful people are these? Some other governors have come out in solidarity with the protesters and nothing untoward was done to them, why would it have happened differently in Osun state?.”

“The saboteurs of this government efforts must be fished out and brought to book. 

Enemies within that is collaborating with the outside ones in our lives will see the wrath of God.” The Chairman said.
