Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has alleged that some suspected hoodlums were responsible for the killing of some ENDSARS protesters in the state.

In a statement through Crusoe Osagie, his media aide, on Friday, Governor Obaseki, while condoling the families of the deceased, ordered the state Police Command to get out on the streets and provide adequate security for the protesters.

“I have just learnt that hoodlums have attacked #ENDSARS protesters, who have conducted themselves peacefully in Benin City,” the Governor was quoted to have said.

“I extend condolences to the victims of the attacks, including those who lost their lives and others who were injured by the thugs.

“It is disheartening that anyone would attack a peaceful assembly of young people who are expressing genuine concerns over police brutality and intimidation in their own country.

“I hereby call on the Edo State Police Command to get out on the streets and provide adequate security for the protesters and ensure that no one is harassed in the course of exercising their rights.”
