#EndSARS: 3 Protesters Were Raped in Edo – Dep. Gov. Shuaibu



Edo State Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu on Monday said that at least three women were raped after suspected hoodlums attacked #EndSARS protesters in the state.
Mr Shaibu spoke during an appearance on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme.

He said the government would do its best to protect residents.
“It’s quite unfortunate that the #EndSARS protests today went violent and the correctional service at Sapele road and Oko prison were invaded. There were jail break in both sides,” he said.


“Before then, during the weekend, hoodlums took over. Yesterday, three young ladies were raped.
“Some through reckless driving, hit up some persons. A lot of lives are already being lost. For the state government, it is not acceptable.”

To curb the violence in Edo, the state government earlier on Monday imposed a 24-hour curfew after two correctional facilities were invaded by hoodlums and some inmates set free.
