Sanwo-Olu,MC Oluomo dissociate selves from attack on #EndSARS protesters by thugs


The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, says the state did not sponsor armed thugs to attack protesters in the Alausa area of the state.

This was contained in a statement titled, ‘Lagos will never encourage thuggery’.

Some armed thugs on Thursday morning attacked youths protesting against police brutality and extortion in the state.

The statement also noted that Sanwo-Olu would be addressing the protesters on Thursday evening.

The statement read in part, “The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to some unverified reports in the social media alleging that the government-sponsored thugs to disrupt the #EndSARS protest. This is untrue and wicked.

“Such wild allegations were obviously concocted by enemies of peace and orderliness to whip up sentiments against the government, which has been doing everything possible to resolve the crisis by identifying with our youths in their efforts towards police reforms.

“Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu will this evening address Lagosians on the crisis.

MC Oluomo not behind attacks on #EndSARS protesters —Spokesman

A Spokesman for the Chairman of the National Union of the Road Transport Workers in Lagos State has denied reports that his principal, Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo, was sponsoring violent attacks against the #EndSARS protesters.

MC Oluomo’s Spokesman, Jimoh Buhari, said this during a chat on Thursday.

He said, “We have no hand in the attacks. People should stop accusing us wrongly. Were the thugs wearing NURTW uniforms? Is MC Oluomo holding a political office? He has no hand in the case.”

ong hours in traffic cause fuel to burn faster and we are losing money due to no fault of ours. So, some boys decided that it was time to get these protesters off the roads
