The Kwara State government on Friday raised an alarm over alleged planned attacks in the state by some anarchists under the cover of End SARS protest.
According to the state Commissioner for Communications, Harriet Afolabi Oshatimehin, in a statement in Ilorin, the anarchists plan to launch violent attacks on government properties in the state.
“The government is in possession of intelligence reports that some anarchists, backed by certain political interests, are planning to attack public facilities in the state, especially the capital city, Ilorin.
“Specifically, we are aware of the evil plan to attack the facilities where the palliative recently donated by the Federal government are being kept for further distribution to victims of the recent rainstorm.
“It is important to state that the disbursements of the Federal government’s palliative to the victims began since Monday, October 19, and still ongoing as of today, October 23, 2020.”
She said ” The state government has alerted security agencies on the evil plots to attack public properties.
“Even so, this serves to inform members of the public of the plots of some unpatriotic elements who have hijacked the End SARS peaceful protests nationwide to impose anarchy and advance their own political course, the statement added.
The government urged members of the public to be vigilant and not let down their guards, while every effort is being made to secure the lives and property of every citizen and go about their lawful businesses without any fear.
