Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has denied reports that he sponsored some thugs to disrupt the peaceful protests by #EndSARS protesters in Alausa, the state capital.

Citynews Nigeria had reported how hoodlums brandishing all manner of weapon and arm stormed Alausa to attack EndSARS protesters

A statement by Gbenga Omotosho, the state’s Commissioner for Information reads: “The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to some unverified reports in the social media alleging that the government-sponsored thugs to disrupt the #EndSARS protest. This is untrue and wicked.

“Such wild allegations were obviously concocted by enemies of peace and orderliness to whip up sentiments against the government, which has been doing everything possible to resolve the crisis by identifying with our youths in their efforts towards police reforms.

“Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has been preaching peace. So has the Deputy Governor, who addressed the protesters last Friday. The Governor has addressed them twice – at the Lekki Toll Gate and at the House of Assembly. He even carried a placard and marched with the youths after assuring them that he felt their pains and that it was legitimate for them to protest.”

Besides, the Governor visited the President to tender their five-point demand. He ensured that all the protesters arrested by the police were released unconditionally.
