    The Osun state police command has on Sunday, reacted to claims that the convoy of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu was attacked in the state at the weekend.

    Speaking via a statement by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Yemisi Opalola, the command stated that the video being circulated on social media was an attack on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola during the EndSARS protest in Osun in October 8, 2020.

    The command noted that those spreading the video did so with the aim of causing restlessness in the state.

    It reads; “The attention of Osun State Police Command has been drawn to the news making the rounds and video trending on social media that; Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s convoy was attacked by Osun Youths on the 8th of October 2022.

    “The Osun State Police Command wishes to inform the members of the public that, the news/trending video on social media was the attack on the Osun State Governor, His Excellency Oyetola Adegboyega’s convoy by EndSars protesters about 2 years ago, 17th of October 2020 and not the 8th of October 2022, as being mischievously circulated.

    “The Commissioner of Police, CP Olawale Olokode, psc (now AIG), wishes to state that, the news/video is misinforming and misleading, which is a calculated attempt to cause apprehension or state of insecurity in the state by some unscrupulous elements.”
