Edo State Government on Friday, commends  all security agencies in the state to fish out the killers of #EndSARS protesters within 24 hours.

The Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, while addressing protesters after the tragic attack at the Benin protest, said the government will not fold its arms and watch harm come the way of young people exercising their fundamental human rights as citizens of the country.

There was an earlier report that at least two protesters died, after being attacked by  hoodlums during the #EndSARS protest at Ring Road, Benin.

However, in a statement by the Special Adviser to Governor Godwin Obaseki on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, on Friday, the deputy governor said only one protester was killed, as he vowed to bring justice.

The statement titled, ‘Edo govt gives security agencies 24 hours to fish out killers of EndSARS protester in Benin’ quoted Shaibu, as saying, “I have given instructions to the security agencies to fish out those behind the attack. The police, the Department of State Security and other security agencies have been ordered to bring to book those guys that harassed you and killed that young man.

“Some of you sustained injuries, I can see them from here; they have 24 hours to bring the attackers to book.”

Continuing, he said, “We will not fold our hands as a government and watch miscreants brutalize anyone involved in this protest. So, please maintain your calm and orderliness during the protests.

“We are with you in this struggle. President Muhammadu Buhari has also said that there is going to be a reform, but we, as a state, are going to ensure that we have a reform that is people-friendly because the police are meant to protect lives and property not to destroy them. I want to assure you that we are with you on this.

Youths across the state since last few days, joined their fellow youths from other part of the states in the country, to protest against Nigeria Police Force and its extrajudicial killings by men of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

Meanwhile, the protests had gained more momentum as Nigerian youths all over the world has joined in the protest.
