The Governor was however silent about the issue that happened yesterday and cost the lives of two citizens in Oshogbo the capital city of osun state.

Gboyega Oyetola denied that his convoy killed two persons during the attack that was unleashed. He also said that one of the victims was killed in an accident by 12:30pm, while the other victim was said to have died at Ayepe area town of the state. Governor Oyetola in a broadcast on Sunday said that the youths have been protesting peacefully before it was hijacked by thugs and hood lumps.

The statement reads “Yesterday evening(Saturday), political thugs and hood lumps made failed attempt on my life and those of my aides while identifying with our beloved youths who engaged in a legitimate protest against the alleged brutality of the now disbanded Special Anti Robbery Squad(SARS)”.

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

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the commando style with which the assailants carried out their attack was deliberate and pre-planned. It was also evident that it was not the genuine protesters that carried out the violence. “Preliminary investigation further revealed that no live bullet or cannister of teargas was fired at the rampaging political thugs. Therefore, no life was lost at the scene of the incident. I was properly evacuated to safety. “Regrettably, two lives were reportedly lost yesterday. But none occurred during the attack on me. 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. “We sympathise with the families of the deceased and pray to God to grant them the fortitude to bear the great losses. “I have directed that the incidents be properly investigated with a view to ascertaining the causes of the deaths. “By this week, we shall be setting up a Judicial Panel of Enquiry in line with the directive of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to investigate all related cases of abuse and brutality by the disbanded SARS. This panel will also investigate 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 had embarked on successful and peaceful road walks with us several times in the past.

“I went to the airport, passed through immigration, and while I was putting my bags through the body and baggage scanner, the immigration officer who had previously cleared me, called me back. He told me he had orders from above to detain me.

“Okay, at this point I’m like excuse me, my flight is in an hour. On what grounds are you detaining me?” He didn’t respond. Instead, he goes to his computer where he typed in my name and something that looked like a ‘wanted poster’ popped up on the portal.

“He blocked my view so I couldn’t see most of it but I saw some of it. And it read something like – ‘This person is under investigation by XYZ Intelligence Agency. If seen, they should be apprehended on sight.’”
