Ooni and former President Obasanjo meet over #EndSARS agitation



The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, and former President Olusegun Obasanjo have held talks on the protests by youths against police brutality.

The meeting was held at the monarch’s palace in Ile-Ife, Osun State.

According to a statement by the Ooni’s media aide, Moses Olafare, Oba Ogunwusi described the #EndSARS struggle as a clear message to the government, particularly about its inability to get things done in a coordinated manner.

He urged the youths to allow the government to fully attend to their yearnings.

Oba Ogunwusi condemned the attack on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s convoy by thugs at the venue of an #EndSARS protest in Osogbo, the state capital.

He commended the governor for his maturity in handling the sensitive issue, despite the provocation.

Obasanjo described the #EndSARS protest as a product of an extensive agitation that must be addressed by the government.
