    Owo attack: Sanwo-Olu sympathises with Akeredolu, people of Ondo State

    Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has sympathised with his Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu and the people of the state over the Sunday’s killing of worshippers at a Catholic church in Owo.

    Worshippers at St. Francis Catholic Church at Owa-luwa Street, Owo, were attacked and killed by gunmen during service.

    Sanwo-Olu, in a condolence message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, described the attack as callous, inhuman and despicable.

    He sympathised with the people of Ondo State, especially the residents of Owo, and members of the St. Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa.

    According to him, it is crime against humanity to open fire on worshippers on Sunday morning, killing scores of people.

    The governor, who also commiserated with the Catholic Church of Nigeria and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), expressed deep sorrow over the loss of lives in the ugly incident.

    ”On behalf of the government and people of Lagos State, I commiserate with Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Ondo State Government and the entire people of the state, over the tragic loss caused by the attack and killings of worshippers by the evil men this morning.

    ”Attacking a congregation and shedding innocent blood during a divine service in the temple of God is condemnable as it is a crime against humanity.

    ”It is barbaric, callous and despicable crime for any man to attack and kill worshippers or any fellow man in a manner the yet-to-be-identified gunmen carried out the heinous crime in the Catholic Church this morning.

    ”Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, families and the Christian community and the people of Owo, as well as the entire people of Ondo State, who are affected by this unfortunate incident,” he said.

    By Florence Onuegbu

    Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday called the death of Prophet Temitope Joshua, who died last Saturday at the age of 57, painful.

    This is contained in a statement signed by Sanwo-Olu's chief press secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, and made available to journalists in Lagos on Tuesday.

    He said the death of The Synagogue's founder, Church of All Nations, a Christian mega-church, had come as a brutal shock.

    He urged the family of the deceased, friends, associates, Church members, the people and the government of Ondo State to take courage and accept it in good faith.

    According to him, there is no doubt that the death of a loved one is generally painful because irreparable, but everyone must always find comfort in God.

    “It was especially if the deceased had lived a good life, just like Joshua, which had a positive impact on people both inside and outside the coasts of Nigeria.

    “Joshua's wise pastoral counsel and philanthropic gestures will be greatly missed by all.

    “His philanthropic gesture will be missed by the less privileged and by all members of the Church, especially in the Ikotun axis of Lagos State, where he played an active role as a cleric and philanthropist.

    "I pray that God will grant the late Prophet eternal rest and give his family the courage to endure the irreparable loss," he said. (NOPE)

    EndSARS: Sanwo-Olu meets President Buhari, IGP, presents protesters’ demands

    Following the continuing EndSARS protest in Lagos, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, was in Abuja on Tuesday to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari and the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, on the development.

    Sanwo-Olu, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, presented the demands of the protesters to the President and IGP respectively, in fulfillment of his promise to thousands of protesters championing the EndSARS protests.

    The demands from Lagos youths were on the need for the Federal Government to initiate reforms that will bring about positive change and a new orientation among officers of the Nigeria Police.

    The reforms are part of the five-point demands of the #EndSARS protesters, who are currently campaigning to end all forms of brutality and extra judicial killings being committed by some operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

    Presenting the demands, the governor told the president that the protesters are demanding the release of all the protesters arrested.

    ”They said we should set up a Trust Fund to pay compensation to the families of those who have died. I have set up my own Trust Fund today and I have announced it.

    ”The third one, they said, we should set up a small committee of enquiry for people that are bitter. So, tomorrow the IGP is coming to the Governors’ Forum and he is going to ask each of us to set up a five-man team.

    ”The final one is that we should increase the salary of the Police officers and the IGP said he is working on that and pledged to take some of them through a psycho-social treatment.

    ”They would go to Force Hospital where they will go through a thorough medical evaluation. The ones that can still be absorbed will be redeployed.”

    In his response, President Buhari commended the Lagos State Governor for his efforts at engaging the protesters, during which he told them that their agitations are legitimate.

    The governor noted that the primary responsibility of the Police or any law enforcement agency is to protect the citizens and not to be their tormentors.

    Sanwo-Olu on Monday and Tuesday addressed the protesters in Lekki and Alausa areas of Lagos State, where he promised to meet with President Buhari and the Inspector General of Police to present their case to them on the urgent need for Police reforms.
