Governor Obaseki Reacts To Attacks On EndSARS Protesters In Benin
Protesters attacked in Edo state
Following attacks on #EndSARS protesters, the Governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki has reacted.
He took to Twitter to condemn the thugs while condoling with families of those who lost their loved ones.
He took to Twitter and wrote:
“I have just learnt that hoodlums are attacking #EndSARS protesters, who have conducted themselves peacefully in Benin City. I extend condolences to the victims of the attack, including those who lost their lives and others who were injured by the thugs.
It is disheartening that anyone would attack a peaceful assembly of young people, who are expressing genuine concerns to #EndSARS, police brutality and intimidation in their own country.
“I hereby call on the Police Command in the state to get out on the streets and provide adequate security for the #EndSARS protesters and ensure that no one is harassed in the course of exercising their rights in Edo State.”
Thorough investigation would be conducted immediately to fish out the culprits of the attack on peaceful #EndSARS protesters in Benin City, and we would do all possible within the law to ensure those culpable are brought to justice.”
