Osun Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has accused some armed thugs of capitalising on the ongoing EndSARS protests to assassinate him.
The State Governor and some of his executives narrowly escaped death on Saturday when they were attacked after addressing #ENDSARS protesters in Osogbo, capital of Osun.
In a state wide broadcast on Sunday morning, the Governor said the incident was unfortunate and an attempt on his life.
“The protest was hijacked by thugs who wanted to kill me. We escaped from the scene without shoot or firing teargas to them.
“But after the incident, we gathered that two people died. One of them died as a result of a bike accident,” Oyetola said.
