Two people have been reported dead with several injured when the convoy of Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State was on Saturday attacked by some hoodlums while he was addressing the #EndSARS Protesters in Osogbo, the state capital.
The governor, who reportedly got back to the state less than an hour before the incident, had joined the protesters at the Olaiya junction to address them.
Several yet to be identified people were severely wounded as many others scampered for safely.
Some victims have been rushed to Asubiaro state hospital for medical attention.
Confirming the incident, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor said “Yes, the story is true. The Governor was attacked by Hoodlums.”
Before it was disrupted, Governor Gboyega Oyetola had assured the protesters that all those who sustained any form of injuries during #EndSARS protest will be taken care of by government.
The Governor who first apologised for not being able to address them since the protest started in the State assured the protesters that he believes in the genuine intention of the protest.
He told the protesters that the presidency has directed all state governors to constitute judicial panel of inquiry to look into the SARS activities before it was disbanded
