This was revealed in a press statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officers, SP Fadeyi on behalf of the Commissioner of Police.

According to the statement, the Police had to use teargas to disperse protesters after they attempted to force their way into the Police station.

” The attention of the Commissioner of Police, Oyo State Command, CP. Joe Nwachukwu Enwonwu, psc has been drawn to the trending story/video that has been widely circulated on Social media today 10/10/2020 that Police killed a protester in Ogbomoso during the “EndSARS” protest.

“The CP wishes to state that the Police allowed the protesters to express their feelings during the protest and they were not hindered in any form until when they started throwing stones into the Police premises and attempted to gain entrance into the premises. The Police in turn used tear gas to disperse them from gaining entrance into the Owode Ogbomoso Area Command/Police Station to disperse them and preventing them from gaining entrance and attacking the station.

“The Police did not fire a shot or kill any protester as widely circulated. The CP in his earlier press release had sought for collaborations of parents/guardian, religious and community leaders, leaders of thought etc to wade in and appeal to these angry youths to exercise patience, give the Police high Command some time to properly reform SARS.

“He has equally warned social miscreants/disgruntled elements to steer clear of the State as the Police in Oyo Stage will not fold their arms and allow breakdown of law and order, while he assures the good people of Oyo State to go about their lawful businesses without fear of molestations from any quarters,” the statement read.

Similarly, a source in the town who spoke anonymously to OYOINSIGHT.COM stated that one Adefolahan Hassan aka MC Francis mobilized some ‘unscrupulous elements’ in the name of Endsars protest, and took the gang to the Police Area Command.

It was learnt that the University authorities had earlier during the week met with some leaders of the Police force in the town to forestall against confrontation between the Police and students.

“Visits to both the Teaching Hospital and the various Police formations indicated that nobody died during the protest.

“However a guy who participated in the protest and was running for their life, for fear of being caught in the imbroglio fell and hit his head and was treated at the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso, before being discharged.

‘Hoodlums hijacked the protest from the organizers who are clearly not our students.Yahoo boys, thieves and cultists saw opportunity in the Endsars thing and wanted to free some detainees at the area command,” the source said.
