Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has ordered investigation on a BRT bus involved in the attack on #EndSARS protesters in Alausa on Thursday.

A video of the incident which went viral on social media showed armed men coming out of a BRT bus to attack protesters.

Mr Sanwo-Olu tweeted saying his government would never permit attack on peaceful protesters, adding he would address the state live later in the day.

“I strongly condemn the attack of peaceful protesters by armed and unscrupulous elements trying to cause chaos in Alausa today,” he wrote.

“My government will never tolerate the attack of protesters. Security agents will immediately protect peaceful protesters from miscreants.

“I have received reports involving a bus in our state bus service. Our buses will never be involved in such activities and I have instructed the state team to get to the root of it. I will address our residents live today on developments.

“I understand the atmosphere of distrust in which things are happening and how rapidly the situation has escalated, but I need to let every Lagosian understand that our government believes firmly in democratic ideals and will continue to act in accordance with our belief.”
