Alleged deaths not linked to governor’s convoy, says Osun CPS
The Chief Press Secretary to the State of Osun Governor, Ismail Omipidan has said that the alleged deaths in Osun happened in circumstances that are not in any way linked to the governor’s visit to the protest ground.
According to Omipidan, first death happened in a motorcycle accident prior to the arrival of the Governor at the protest ground. His arrival time was 2:35 pm.
The LAUTECH hospital confirmed receiving the victim who eventually died at 12:30 pm (2hrs earlier).
He said the second death claim occurred at Oke- Aiyepe which is several kilometers away from the protest ground and not on the route to the Government house. This happened at 4:35om, over 30 minutes after the Governor was evacuated for the violence-ridden protest ground and settled in the Government House.
“None of these deaths happened at the protest ground, none of the Governor’s aide fired a bullet”, he added.
