Hunters join #EndSARS protest in Osogbo to prevent thugs’ infiltration
#EndSARS protest in Osun took a new dimension as members of the Hunters Group of Nigeria on Tuesday identified with #EndSARS protesters in Osogbo as they join the protest to ward-off hoodlums that may hijack the demonstrations.
WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the hunters who are armed with guns and other weapons stormed the protest ground at Olaiya area of Osogbo around 1:20pm and declared their support to the struggle.
The leader of the hunters’ group, Nureni Adisa and his team adorned in their uniforms who were seen wearing a protective armour dotted with charms vowed to quell any incursion of hoodlums into the protest.
Addressing the protesters, Adisa said their presence at the protest scenes and around Osogbo is to ensure civility, orderliness and security of lives and property of the people of the capital city.
He condemned the attack on Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the state by some political thugs last weekend and charged the protesters to be at alert and ensure that any miscreant that may want to infiltrate them is identified.
Reacting, the spokesperson of the protesters, Adebisi Oluwaseun Emmanuel explained how crisis ensued at the protest scene at Olaiya while Oyetola was addressing protesters.
He promised to ensure that the protest is not hijacked and called on the governor to bring those who attacked protesters last week to justice.
Since the demonstrations for end to police brutality and bad governance started, police officers have not be found in the public either to ensure orderliness nor prevent hijack of protest.
