The EndSARS protesters in Osun State have on Monday announced that they have suspended the demonstration across the state.
The protesting youths under the aegis of EndSARS protest Movement made the announcement while addressing journalists at the Corresponts’ Chapel, Osogbo, on Monday evening.
Flanked by other EndSARS Protesters, One of the EndSARS activist, Ayo Oloogun while addressing the journalists said the suspension of the protest was necessary as criminal elements have capitalised on the protests by maiming innocent citizens and destroying properties.
Oloogun who appreciated consciousness of youths during the course of agitating the alleged brutalities, extortion and extra-judicial killings by operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Response Squad SARS and its disbandment said they have suspended all the protest.
“In the Words of the 35th American President, J.F Kennedy, “those who refused to participate in the politics of their environment end up being governed by their inferiors”.
“It is against the backdrop of the above thought that we greatly appreciate the doggedness and resilience of the teeming youths in the State of Osun, for showcasing genuine concerns for nation-building and just society, by joining their comrades across the country to agitate for end to police brutality and brigandage.
“The patriotic commitment and stance of our youths against brutal force and unlawful activities of the disbanded Special Anti-robbery Squad(SARS) remain unforgettable and exemplary, it is indeed a watershed in the annals of our dear country.
