There was an attempt on the life of the governor of Osun State, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola, on Saturday as he was attacked by armed men.
Armed with guns, cutlasses, the hoodlums swooped on the governor at Olaiya Junction, while he was addressing the #EndSARS protesters at the state capital, Osogbo.
Oyetola had joined protesters in the walk from Alekuwodo area to Olaiya Junction, singing with them and promising them that their demands would be looked into.
He said he supported their peaceful agitations, describing it as part of democratic process.
However, while still addressing the youths, the armed men and women started shooting, hurled stones at the governor’s car.
