The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, on Tuesday paid a condolence visit to the family of deceased Jimoh Isiaka and two other victims of the violence that started during the ENDSARS protests.

Makinde entourage included the Speaker, Oyo state House of Assembly, Mr Adebo Ogundoyin, and some lawmakers explained that beyond the EndSARS protest, most Nigerians have become frustrated over prevailing harsh economic reality in the country and warned that if government fails to address youth idleness with gainful employment there might be a future disaster.

He noted that while his government was not against peaceful protest, youths embarking on protesters must be responsible enough to voice their concerns as the state government would work more at ensuring youths in the state were meaningfully engaged.

Makinde also ordered the immediate release of N100 million for the renovation of Soun of Ogbomoso’s palace, following the violence that erupted in Ogbomoso axis of the state, weekend, as a result of the ENDSARS protest, which led to the destruction of property of Oba Jimoh Oyewumi, Ajagungbade’s palace.

He ordered the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters in the state, Chief Bayo Lawal and the Caretaker Chairman, Ogbomoso North Local Government Council to do an assessment and documentation of the vandalised parts of the palace as well as vehicles to determine what would be repaired and those to be replaced.
