Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu
After armed thugs had been noticed disembarking from a BRT bus in Lagos to assault #EndSARS protesters as we speak, the Governor of the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reacted.
He denied ever sponsoring thugs to disrupt the protests.
He promised to supply safety for the protesters.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote:
“I strongly condemn the assault of peaceable protesters by armed and unscrupulous parts making an attempt to trigger chaos in Alausa as we speak.
My authorities won’t ever tolerate the assault of protesters. Safety brokers will instantly defend peaceable protesters from miscreants.
I perceive the environment of mistrust during which issues are taking place and the way quickly the state of affairs has escalated, however I must let each Lagosian perceive that our authorities believes firmly in democratic beliefs and can proceed to behave in accordance with our perception.
I’ve acquired studies involving a bus in our state bus service. Our buses won’t ever be concerned in such actions and I’ve instructed the state group to get to the basis of it.
I’ll deal with our residents stay as we speak on developments.”
