The All Progressives Congress (APC) leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s convoy reportedly came under attack in Osun lately, according to reports, and the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has responded.
A video that claimed that several hoodlums attacked Tinubu’s convoy in the southwest state went viral online.
The APC presidential candidate was not in the state on Friday, October 8, as alleged, and there was no such event, according to the police command in Osun on Sunday, October 9.
The command denied the false information by claiming that the viral video in question was about the 2020 attack by ENDSARS protesters on Governor Oyetola Adegboyega’s convoy. Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s convoy was allegedly attacked by Osun Youths on October 8, 2022, according to news reports and a popular video on social media, according to Opalola.
The Osun State Police Command wishes to remind the general public that the news/trending video on social media was the attack by ENDSARS demonstrators on the convoy of the Osun State Governor, His Excellency Oyetola Adegboyega, around two years ago, on 17th of October 2020 and not the 8th of October 2022, as being mischievously circulated. “The Command wishes to state that, the news/video is misinforming and misleading, which is a calculated attempt to cause apprehension or state of insecurity in the state by some unscrupulous elements.
