The Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola on Saturday, escaped an attack by thugs which happened while he was addressing #EndSARS protesters in Osogbo, the state capital.
Some of the vehicles in the Governor’s convoy were also destroyed by the thugs but the Governor himself was evacuated to safety by his security team.
As the convoy was leaving the protest venue, some of the youths continued to stone his vehicles.
The attack on Oyetola has been confirmed by his Senior Special Assitant on Media, Mabel Aderonke.
“There was a scary attempt on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s life by armed thugs on Saturday in Osogbo,” @MabelAderonkeN tweeted.
Before the attack on the Governor and his entourage, it was gathered that a Police officer on the Governor’s security team shot at peaceful protesters, leading to the death of one person while others were injured.
