The Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress engaged in a war verbally over the attack on #EndSARS protesters by armed thugs in Lagos State.

The PDP had betoken Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the attack earlier, and had also given him 24 hours to fish out the hoodlums that attacked the protesters in Lagos.

The All Progressive Congress tackled the People’s Democratic Party, blaming them over being politically aware of #EndSARS protests in Lagos.

“Sanwo-Olu should to fish out all the attackers of the #EndSARS protests within 24 hours and also ensure no such attack occurs anymore. Unless the governor successfully achieves this, he may be an accessory after the fact of the attacks, it does not matter whether he pledged N200 million as compensation to the victims of the protests

The Lagos PDP, in a statement by its spokesperson, taofik Gani, said that the governor would come out as a sincere chief security officer of the State only if he can prove that he really protects the security of lives and property in the state. Such a task is to ensure the security of all peaceful protester in the state,”

“The attempt in the social media, sponsored by the opposition PDP, to hold the state government responsible is, to say the least, the height of bitter politics.

“However, our investigation has revealed that the PDP would like to take advantage of the spate of protest to cause mayhem because of the October bye-elections in the Lagos East Senatorial District.

“Our intelligence has revealed the plans to unleash further attacks on the protesters, especially in the Kosofe Local Government in the days ahead.

“As the ruling party, we are mindful of our role to support the government especially as regards the citizens rights and the delivery of our electoral promises,” he added.
