EndSARS: Bakare Calls UK, US,Canada For Visa Ban On Oyetola



Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola

Leader of #RevolutionNow movement, Osun State chapter, Olawale Bakare, on Saturday, called the United Kingdom, America and Canada to issue visa ban on Governor Gboyega Oyetola over the alleged involvement of his security details in the killing of two EndSARS protesters in the state.

Meanwhile, the Chief Press Secretary to Osun State Governor, Mr Ismail Omipidan on several platforms; conventional media and new media has debunked the allegation that Governor Oyetola security details involved in the killing of the two citizens.

Bakare had on several occasion alleged to have caused violence and riot in the state. He was also alleged to have stated in a meeting with protesters that they should seize the government from Oyetola.

A statement signed by Bakare read, “After employing and sponsoring hoodlums, thugs and other bloodthirsty agents to forcefully end and disperse peaceful protests, Mr Gboyega Oyetola, current Gov of Osun State, reluctantly showed up at the barricades to address protesters, since all excuse to defend the brutality and victimizations earlier meted out to protesters by sending hoodlums and thugs instead of hearing their pains and grievances; he turned the protest ground to a battlefield where live bullets were shot at armless and defenceless protesters. This evil intervention led to the eventual death of two protesters namely; Lateef Mutiu aka Fresh and Halimi Ahmed Olamilekan.

“The blatant denial that nobody died, and the heartless effort of the State Governor and his blood-thirsty cabinet to bury all evidence by threatening the families of the deceased to deny the death of their sons while the mourning of the untimely death of the protestors was still fresh; led the state government in making kangaroo arrangements of bribing these two families with the embarrassing amount of #500,000 (less than $1,400/£1,200) each.

“Mr Mutiu Lateef and Ahmed Olamilekan are among the peaceful protesters who were shot multiple times at the back and other places that suggest they were running for their lives and they were never a threat to the killer, but unfortunately, both of them could not survive the gruesome attack and died painfully.

“The incessant attacks on critics and peaceful agitators, the gross violation of human rights, and the undemocratic and violent tendencies of the desperate Gboyega Oyetola- led administration to repress dissidents should not be overlooked and left unchecked.

“We hereby humbly request for the immediate Visa ban on the governor of Osun State Alh. Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola, as a way to curb his despotic and tyrannical style of leadership, over militarizing the state through excessive use of force and abuse of power.”
