Edo Deputy Gov, Shaibu speaks on #EndSARS protest, reveals number of protesters raped
The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu has disclosed that no fewer than three ladies were raped after suspected hoodlums attacked #EndSARS protesters in the state.

“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 added.
“Before then, during the weekend, hoodlums took over. Yesterday, three young ladies were raped.
