Thugs on Saturday attacked vehicles in the convoy of Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, while he was addressing #EndSARS protesters in Osogbo, the state capital.
The Governor had stopped in the midst of the protesters to address them only for some of the hoodlums to start throwing objects which forced the Governor to immediate withdraw into his vehicle.
As the convoy sped past the protesters, dangerous weapons were brought out including manchete axe, sticks as the pounded the vehicles in the convoy.
Unconfirmed reports said some persons in the convoy were injured as the attackers broke windscreens.
One person in particular in the video could be seen wielding a cutlass while an axe was driven into the side door of one of the vehicles.
The hoodlums vandalised some of the vehicles in the governor’s convoy as his security aides ferried him to safety after a stampede.
The Senior Special Assistant to the governor on Media, Mabel Aderonke, confirmed the attack while sharing photos of the vandalised vehicles.
“There was a scary attempt on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola's life by armed thugs on Saturday in Osogbo,” @MabelAderonkeN tweeted.
