Sanwo Olu responds to allegations of sponsoring thugs to end #EndSARS protests

After armed criminals got off a BRT bus in Lagos to attack #EndSARS protesters today, Governor Babajide Sanvo Olu reacted.

He denied that he ever sponsored thugs to stop the protests.

He promised to ensure the safety of the demonstrators.

On Twitter, he tweeted:

“I strongly condemn the attack on peaceful demonstrators by unscrupulous armed elements seeking to wreak havoc in Alaus today.

My government will never tolerate protester attacks. The security forces will immediately protect the peaceful demonstrators from the villains.

I understand the atmosphere of mistrust in which events are taking place and the speed with which the situation is escalating, but I must make it clear to every Lagosian that our government strongly believes in democratic ideals and will continue to act in accordance with our convictions.

I got bus messages on our state bus service. Our buses will never participate in such events, and I instructed the state team to go to the root.
