#EndSARS protesters have attacked Atan-ota Police Divisional office, set the station ablaze and subsequently murdered the D.C.O, DSP Augustine Ogbeche in cold blood.
In a Press Statement signed and sent to CRIMECHANNELS by Ogun State Police Public Relations officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi a civilian also died in the process while some arms were carted away in the process. They also inflicted serious injury on the DPO, SP Sikiru Olugbenga whose whereabout is yet unknown.
Abimbola disclosed that elsewhere, in Abeokuta, some groups of boys attacked Obada-oko divisional headquarters and vandalized the station.
In view of these developments, the PPRO quoted the Commissioner of Police in charge of Ogun State Command as appealing to the youths to eschew violence and embrace peace as violence will do no one good.
He also appealed to traditional institutions, parents and other critical stakeholders to prevail on the youths to stop this carnage and give the government a chance to address the situation.
The youths are reminded that since the commencement of the protests the police have been nice and civil to them even when some of our men were injured and our stations damaged.. We even went ahead and released all the 36 suspects we arrested. However if in the course of handling the protests anybody feels offended we plead understanding and not retaliatory measures including killing and maiming policemen and burning and damaging police stations.
