At least two protesters have been killed by armed thugs who attacked Governor Gboyega Oyetola’s convoy in Osogbo, Osun State, during the #EndSARS protest on Saturday, witnesses said.
Three witnesses who spoke with our correspondent said the killing occurred in Ayepe area of Osogbo some minutes past 4 p.m.

The incident happened when Mr Oyetola convoy was attacked in the state capital. The attackers were armed with cutlass, broken bottles and all sorts of weapons.
This incident occurred as the governor addressed protesters.

It took efforts of security operatives to rescue Mr Oyetola from the scene.
This is not the first attack on protesters in Osun. A similar attack was launched on protesters last Thursday.
The state police spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, did not respond to calls and text messages.
