The incident happened at Olaiya Junction in Osogbo, the state capital, and it left one of the protester known as Oloye severely injured.

While Mr Oloye has been taken to hospital for treatment, many other protesters who fled the scene for safety are yet to be seen.

This is the second time protesters would be attacked by hoodlums in Osogbo this week.

Mr Oyetola in a statement by his spokesperson, Ismail Omipidan, said it was ‘irrational’ to think that the government would sponsor thugs against peaceful protesters.

 

The #EndSARS protest is taking place across states of the country.
