Police react to alleged mob attack on Tinubu’s convoy


The Osun State Police Command has debunked reports making the rounds that presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu’s convoy was attacked in the state.

The command in a statement on Sunday, signed by its spokesperson, SP Yemisi Oplalola said its attention has been drawn to the news making the rounds and video trending on social media that; Osun Youths attacked Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s convoy on Saturday.

The command explained the trending video on social media was the attack on the Osun State Governor Oyetola Gboyega’s convoy by EndSARS protesters about two years ago, on 17th of October 2020, and not the 8th of October 2022, as being mischievously circulated.

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Olawale Olokode, (now AIG), wishes to state that the news/video is misinforming and misleading, which is a calculated attempt to cause apprehension or state of insecurity in the state by some unscrupulous elements.

“To put the record straight, I wish to inform you that Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu did not come to Osun State for any program of late at all,” the statement read.

Olokode, therefore, enjoined the people of the state to disregard the information and go about their legitimate businesses without entertaining fear of insecurity, as necessary security measures to forestall any likely breakdown of law and order is in place.
