Lagos State Government Debunks Rumors That An #Endsars Protester Was Shot Dead In Surulere By Policeman

On Monday, October 12, 2020 at the #endsars protest in Surulere, reports have it that one of the protesters was shut dead by policemen.

Reacting to this, the Lagos State Government has debunked the rumors circulating that a protester was shot dead by policemen in Surulere.

According to the statement released by Gbenga Omotosho, the Commissioner for information, it read:

”The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to reports that an #ENDSARS protester has been killed in Surulere. This is not true.

A group of hoodlums stormed the Anti-Kidnapping Unit at Hogan Bassey Street, Surulere, to free two suspects standing trial for alleged kidnapping. They shot three officers. One of them, Inspector Erinfolami Ayodeji, unfortunately, died. The others are Inspectors Ekein Joshua and Peter Agabi.

The hoodlums, while escaping, fired into the air. A bystander was hit. He also died – sadly.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu commiserates with the families, who lost their loved ones and prays that God will strengthen them.

He urges all those concerned to ensure that these protests do not degenerate further and create room for hoodlums who do not mean well for our society.

The government is working with the Police to ensure the restoration of the peace that Lagos has always been proud of.
