#ENDSARS: Ogun gov, Dapo Abiodun condoles victims’ families, sues for peace


Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has commiserated with the families of those who have lost their loved ones and properties in the #ENDSARS violence in different parts of the country.

This was contained in statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin.

He described the deaths and arson as ‘unfortunate and unwarranted.’

The governor expressed displeasure at some of the violent episodes in the earlier hours of Wednesday in the state, despite his appeal for peace in his address on Tuesday.

He listed the incidents to include the burning of Atan Ota police station, killing of the Divisional Crime Officer and one other person, and serious injury to the Divisional Police Office, and sporadic gunshots by hoodlums in some locations in the state among others.

While he condemned road blockade in some parts of the state, he warned that strident measures might be announced should acts of breach of public safety and security continue.

He called on the demonstrators to bring the protests to an end and allow for the full implementation of their demands.

Governor Abiodun urged security agents to exercise caution in dealing with the #EndSARS protesters to avoid further loss of lives and properties.

Governor Abiodun who has deployed security men and women to ensure an end to the violence, directed the security team to continue to patrol the major streets to ensure peace and tranquility in the day-to-day activities of citizens.

“I plead with all our public and private hospitals to treat all in need of medical attention brought to their facilities”, he added.

“The people of Ogun State should please report all acts of molestation, breaches of peace or extortion by calling 112.

“Our Quick Response Squad alongside other law enforcement teams are on alert to respond quickly.”
