By Timothy Agbor, Osogbo
#EndSARS protesters in Osun state have demanded that the state Governor, Gboyega Oyetola ensure the arrest of hoodlums who attacked him and other members of his entourage while addressing them last weekend.
The youths also charged Governor Oyetola to see to the arrest of the political thugs who attacked them during their peaceful protests in Osogbo.
In a statement by the spokesperson of the protesters, Olawale Bakare, made available to newsmen on Tuesday during their protest at Olaiya junction in Osogbo, the youths demanded that Oyetola arrest the hoodlums who looted Osun mall in Osogbo.
Other protesters who signed the statement are Adebisi O Emmanuel, Chairperson Comtt. For Planning Strategy and Crowd Control, Queen Fisayo, Chairperson, Finance and Welfare Commiittee, and Olushayo Ogunleye, Mobilisation Secretary.
They said “without further delay or compromise, we demand that all the thugs that attacked the governor be arrested and prosecuted;
*That all the so-called thugs who looted Osun Mall be also arrested and prosecuted as we are vehemently against any act of looting and other unlawful practices;
“That all the persons involved in the disruption of our peaceful protest be immediately arrested and prosecuted, as the Governor cannot sell to us the story that he is incapacitated in dispensing his constitutional responsibility in securing lives and properties;
“We maintain that we the youths of Osun State retain the rights to peacefully protest against the inadequacies of the government until freedom is attained. We will continue to agitate for our demand to #EndSars #EndSwat #EndPoliceBrutality #EndBadGoverment and no amount of intimidation will discourage us from the revolutionary path to liberation.
“We also demand justice for all our fallen heroes and all persons involved in their death be brought to book. Our prayers goes to the families of the deceased, may the Almighty grant them the fortitude to bear the loss. And may their gentle souls rest in perfect peace.”
