The #EndSARS protest in Osun took a new dimension yesterday, as members of the Hunters Group of Nigeria identified with #EndSARS protesters in Osogbo, the state capital as they joined the protest to ward-off hoodlums that could hijack the demonstrations.
It was learnt that the hunters, who are armed with guns and other weapons, stormed the protest ground at Olaiya area of Osogbo around 1:20pm and declared their support to the struggle.
The leader of the hunters’ group, one Nureni Adisa and his team adorned in their uniforms who were seen wearing a protective armour dotted with charms vowed to quell any incursion of hoodlums into the protest.
Addressing the protesters, Adisa said their presence at the protest scenes and around Osogbo is to ensure civility, orderliness and security of lives and property of the people of the capital city.
He condemned the attack on the state governor Gboyega Oyetola by some political thugs last weekend and charged the protesters to be at alert and ensure that any miscreant that may want to infiltrate them is identified and promised to ensure that the protest is not hijacked while calling on the governor to bring those who attacked protesters last week to justice.
