Senator Abdulfatai Buhari has described the killing of Jimoh Isiaka during the EndSARS protest in Ogbomoso as shocking and disheartening.
The lawmaker in a statement on Sunday in Ibadan,said that the nation’s constitution and democracy permitted freedom of speech as well as association.
Buhari, the Chairman, Senate Committee on Land Transport, said that it was undemocratic to assault, maim or kill citizens while expressing their fundamental human rights.
“Democratically, peaceful protests put the government on the right track to deliver the dividends of democracy to the citizens.The situation is regrettably painful and I am sure the Commissioner Of Police, Nwachukwu Enwonwu, and other relevant authorities are fully investigating the very unfortunate incident with the aim of bringing the perpetrators to justice.
“I wish those receiving treatment at the Bowen Teaching Hospital soonest recovery from the various injuries they sustained and also express my deepest sympathy to the family of the deceased,” Buhari said.
The lawmaker prayed Allah to grant Jimoh aljanah fridaous and his family and loved ones the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
