If You Destroy Public Property, You'll Face Dire Consequences, Ogun Govt Warns Protesters


ABEOKUTA - The Ogun State Government has warned those planning to attack  public and private warehouses, storages, commercial premises, public buildings and private businesses not to go ahead with their plan.


A statement issued on Thursday by the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Alhaji Abdulwaheed Odusile in Abeokuta warned that any attack on such facilities would be dealt with dire consequences. 


The statement came against the backdrop of  audio messages trending in some circles detailing plans by some criminal elements who had hijacked the peaceful #EndSARS protests to attack government properties in different locations in the state with the intention of looting such.


“Our combined team of law enforcement agents have been put on the alert to protect public buildings and similar properties belonging to the government and other prominent facilities in all locations around the state."


Anyone planning to attack any of these facilities was advised in their interest against such move, adding that the government, while in support of the legitimate demands of the #EndSARS protesters, will deal decisively with any act or conduct by hoodlums  likely to lead to a breach of public peace.
