Osun state commissioner for information, Funke Egbemode said the attack on Governor Gboyega Oyetola on Saturday, was an assassination attempt.

A statement by the Information and Civic Orientation commissioner, Mrs. Funke Egbemonde said: “It was an assassination attempt. This was certainly beyond the #EndSARS protest. The people who launched the attack were not protesters at all.

“Protests have been going on in the State for some days now and there had been no attack on any government official since the beginning of the protest.

“However, today’s attack changed the narrative. It was not a spontaneous attempt. The attackers had it all planned. They had guns and other weapons. In fact, it was a woman who smashed the windscreen of the vehicle of the Secretary to the State Government, Prince Wole Oyebamiji where I was.

“It is really sad that these people infiltrated the ranks of the peaceful protesters and took advantage of the Governor’s walk with the youths to execute their sinister intentions.

“It was simply a street coup to take out the Governor, his Deputy and the Secretary to the State Government, all of whom were exposed during the protest and had to be smuggled into vehicles when the attack was launched.”

Egbemode’s statement threw light on what really transpired when Oyetola decided to march with the #EndSARS protesters in Osogbo.

“Armed with guns, cutlasses, the hoodlums swooped on the Governor at Olaiya junction, while he was addressing the #EndSARS protesters at the state capital”, Egbemode said.

However, while still addressing the youths, the armed men and women started shooting, hurled stones at the Governor’s car”.
