Deputy governor of Edo, Philip Shaibu, reveals that at least three ladies were raped after suspected hoodlums attacked #EndSARS protesters in the state.
TIME OF GIST recalls that #EndSARS protests which started peacefully across the country have been hijacked in some hoodlums.
Speaking Channels Television programme, on Monday, Shaibu said the government would do its best to protect residents.
He said: “It’s quite unfortunate that the #EndSARS protests today went violent and the correctional service at Sapele road and Oko prison were invaded. There were jail break in both sides”.
“Before then, during the weekend, hoodlums took over. Yesterday, three young ladies were raped.
“Some through reckless driving, hit up some persons. A lot of lives are already being lost. For the state government, it is not acceptable.”
