EndSARS Attack: Full Text Of Governor Oyetola's Broadcast by powerfulguy: 9:29am On Oct 18
#Osun #EndSARS Mr Governor’s Broadcast(Text)

My dear Good People of the State of Osun,

Yesterday evening,political thugs&hoodlums made an unsuccessful attempt on my life and those of my aides while identifying with our beloved youths who were engaging in legitimate protest against the alleged brutality of the now disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

My entourage and I had joined protesters from Alekuwodo area to Olaiya Junction chanting solidarity songs and encouraging them along the way. During the course of my address to the protesters to reiterate our cooperation and support, political thugs hijacked the exercise and hurled stones and dangerous weapons at us and vandalised several cars in my convoy.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the commando style with which the assailants carried out their attack leaves no one in doubt that it was deliberate and pre-planned. However, not the genuine protesters resulted to violence.

And the preliminary investigation further revealed that no live bullet was fired at the rampaging political thugs. Not even one canister of teargas was fired. Therefore, no life was lost at the scene of the incident. I was properly evacuated to safety.

Regrettably, two lives were reportedly lost. While sympathizing with the families of the diseased, it must however be noted that one of the said deaths which was caused by a lone motorcycle accident occurred around 12noon, long before I got to the protest ground.

The second death was said to have occurred around Ayepe, about 5 kilometers away from Olaiya where we held the protest.

I have directed that the incidents be properly investigated with a view to ascertaining the cause of the deaths.

By this week, we shall be setting up a Judicial Panel of Enquiry in line with the directive of the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, to investigate all related cases of abuse and brutality by the disbanded SARS. This panel will also be investigating yesterday’s attack.

What happened on Saturday is objectionable, unacceptable and a blight to the Omoluabi ethos that the State of Osun stands for.

Attempt on the life of the governor cannot be planned by the youths who constituted over 60 per cent of the voters that elected us into office and have embarked on successful and peaceful road walks with us several times in the past.

Osun youths who are the original #EndSARS protesters have travelled the road of building a better Osun with us and we have been on the lane of delivering a better and prosperous Osun together. This assassination attempt cannot come from them.

Our Administration had identified with the youths from Day One of the protest in the belief that protest is a legitimate right of the citizenry and a core component of democracy. On the day one of the protest, Senior Government Officials were at the Nelson Mandela Freedom Park to identify with and later address the protesters.

Also, Senior Officers of the Government addressed them at the Gate of the State Secretariat, Abere, on the fourth day to identify with the protesters, pledged our solidarity to their cause and promised to deliver their demands to the President. Those demands have since been met by Mr. President.

The protesters had engaged in peaceful demonstration for the first two days before it was later hijacked in the last five days. In fact, we had cause to raise the alarm last Wednesday to the effect that the protest had been hijacked.

Again, earlier yesterday, our party did raise another alarm that identified political thugs were seen brandishing dangerous weapons while following the protesters.

It is unfortunate that yesterday’s protest which started peacefully was allowed to degenerate into a dangerous enterprise and a huge danger to the lives and properties of the people that we are called out to protect. This is unacceptable.

Consequently,as a responsible &responsive govt,we will do everything within the ambit of the law to protect the lives&properties of our people.All citizens&residents are enjoined to be law abiding as any person found contravening the law shall be made to face the wrath of the law.

We commit to the cause of our youths and the #EndSARS protesters and shall do everything to ensure that their demands are met.

I enjoin all our citizens to be peaceful and to be law abiding as all efforts shall be made to protect them and their property.

Rest assured that we are on top of the situation.We shall fish out the perpetrators of this dastardly act and bring them to justice.We shall not condone any act that will compromise the lives of our people & the hard-won ranking of our State as the most peaceful state in Nigeria.

As a responsible government, we will do everything in our powers to protect the lives and property of our people.

May God continue to bless and keep the State of Osun.

Thank you and God bless.

The bottom line is that the attack was not from. ENDSARS protesters and that should be highlighted in the title for this thread to make sense and gain traffic..

Funny enough, the money hustled both online and offline won't even be enough to settle the pressing problems.

P.S

To all the bastards supporting apc or pdp or defending one politician or the other can you explain why they should be collecting such humongous allowances or salaries compared to what their counterparts in the US earn?

whatever happened that day, only God
knows, let's do things carefully and with
wisdom, just as the Bible says "be wise as
serpent and be harmless as doves.
fighting for your right is not a crime
only fight the right way and use the right
weapons.

Mod, be careful for your choice of words. He was attacked doesnt mean it was done by the protesters. Hudlums are being ushered to infiltrate the legitimacy of the protest, and using words such as ENDSARS attack is not helping issue.

Lies. The videos we saw on social media about it depicts something entirely different. We could clearly hear protesters saying policemen attached to the governor fired live bullets at the people. How come there is no video of you being with them live on ground and protesting with them until you were attacked?

Those on ground and the videos says otherwise, likewise the corpse of the shot protester. If there's something I learnt at an early age in this country, it's that most official accounts are 99% lies especially if the govt is the offending party.
