#ENDSARS: Gov. Abiodun Commiserates with Families of Victims

Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has commiserated with the families of those who lost their loved ones and property in the #ENDSARS violence in different parts of the country. 

In a statement in Abeokuta, the Governor described the deaths and arson as unfortunate and urged management of public and private hospitals to treat all in need of medical attention brought to their facilities.

While pointing out that stringent measures could be announced should acts of breach of public safety and security continue, Governor Abiodun urged security agents to exercise caution in dealing with the #ENDSARS protesters to avoid further loss of lives and property.

He acknowledged the right of the people to protest but regretted that blockade of highways and other roads, destruction of public and private property, and unfortunate loss of lives were clear deviations from the original intention of the protest.

He called on the security team to continue to patrol the major streets towards ensuring peace, and urged the people of the state to report all acts of molestation, breaches of peace or extortion by calling 112.
