News of the EndSARS protest held in Osun was denied by the Osun State Command of the Nigerian Police, especially in Osogbo.
Command SP Yemisi Opalola, who spoke through its Police Public Relations Office, explained that the Commissioner of Police had mobilized police personnel on Friday night to all strategic and flashpoints in the state.
She added that while the Commissioner of Police was out for morning patrol, they encountered a church with an outdoor program earlier today.
The PPRO noted that the CP advised them to follow the Covid-19 guidelines and avoid crowd congestion.
But according to the reports from a journalist and a civil rights activist disclosed that he informed there was a protest in Osogbo in the morning, where about 200 youths gathered between Freedom Park (Old Garage) and Olaiya Junction.
And there was a claim that the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Olawale Olokode, engaged the protesters.
The CP made the protesters realize that they had a right to protest but must do it as peacefully as possible.
Furthermore, he said he believed the protest in Osogbo was because of the ongoing protest at the Lekki Tollgate.
They observed that most Osun and Mall businesses located at Fakunle Area of the state capital did not open their doors for business early.
