She expressed sadness that the attackers had infiltrated the peaceful protest to execute their take sinister intentions.

“It was an assassination attempt. This was certainly beyond the #EndSARS protest. The people who launched the attack were not protesters at all,” she said.

“Protests have been going on in the state for some days now, and there had been no attack on any government official since the beginning of the protest.

“However, today’s attack changed the narrative. It was not a spontaneous attempt. The attackers had it all planned. They had guns and other weapons. In fact, it was a woman who smashed the windscreen of the vehicle of the Secretary to the State Government, Prince Wole Oyebamiji where I was.

“It was simply a street coup to take out the governor, his deputy and the secretary to the state government, all of whom were exposed during the protest and had to be smuggled into vehicles when the attack was launched.”
