Tinubu’s convoy wasn’t attacked in Osun – Police

Osun State Police Command has debunked a rumour making the rounds that the convoy of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, was attacked in the state.

Spokesperson of the Command Yemisi Opalola in a statement on Sunday said the rumour was fuelled by a trending video.

She said in the statement: “The attention of Osun State Police Command has been drawn to the news making the rounds and video trending on social media that; Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s convoy was attacked by Osun Youths on the 8th of October 2022.

“The Osun State Police Command wishes to inform the members of the public that, the news/trending video on social media was the attack on the Osun State Governor, His Excellency Oyetola Adegboyega’s convoy by ENDSARS protesters about 2 years ago, 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.”

Opalola noted that Tinubu did not come to Osun State for any programme recently.

She enjoined the people of the state to disregard the information and go about their legitimate businesses without entertaining fear of insecurity, as necessary security measures to forestall any likely breakdown of law and order is in place.
