People carry placards in continuation of ongoing demonstrations to call for the scrapping of the controversial police unit at Ikeja, on October 9, 2020. - Nigeria's top police chief banned a controversial anti-robbery unit and other special agents from mounting roadblocks and carrying out stop-and-search operations over accusations of abuses. Inspector-General of Police Muhammed Adamu said the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) and other tactical squads must stop such operations "with immediate effect". Adamu said the decision followed findings that "a few personnel" in undercover tactical squads have abused their position "to perpetrate all forms of illegality". (Photo by PIUS UTOMI EKPEI / AFP)

The Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola, has directed the state Commissioner of Police, Undie Adie, to investigate the death of two persons in the state capital, Osogbo.

The two persons were said to have been killed while thugs attacked #EndSARS protesters and the governor’s convoy on Saturday.

Although the governor escaped being attack by the crowd, several vehicles in his convoy were damaged by persons who threw dangerous objects at the vehicles.

Some eyewitnesses also reported that the convoy ran over some protesters.

In a state broadcast early on Sunday, the governor, however, debunked the insinuation that his convoy ran over the protesters.
