Bolaji Salami, the Ondo state commissioner of police has disclosed that two police sergeants were killed in the violence that ensued during the #EndSARS protest in the state.

Salami said the two sergeants were killed in Ondo and Ore towns. While the officer killed at Ore was lynched after he ran into the hoodlums while riding on his motorbike, he said the sergeant that was killed in Ondo town ran into the hoodlums around the palace road and was burnt inside his car.

The police commissioner also revealed that a civilian was killed during the crisis, adding that the casualty was part of the three-man gang that attempted to rob a bank in Ondo town. His disclosure however counters claims of  two secondary school students being killed in Ondo town when police fired at protesters.

Salami who also lamented over the mayhem unleashed on the state, stressed that the damage the police suffered was unquantifiable.

He Said;

“I am fully committed to policing you and the entire state with the best of my ability and certainly with respect to human rights.

“Let us put behind us the events of the past weeks and focus on our ability to support the police as it was in the beginning.”
