The Enugu protest had a few hiccups as paid thugs where seen in the midst of the peaceful protesters. According to reports, it is believed that the paid thugs where from the state Governor.
Flavour who recounted the incident on his Twitter handle stated that the state Governor walked out on them without obviously addressing the questions demands of the peaceful protesters.
Read his statement below;
“Enugu protest! Today our lives were threatened and we are making it clear that if ANYTHING happens to any single one of us or any protestors, let it be known that it was done by the ENUGU STATE GOVERNMENT!
“Today, our peaceful protest in Enugu from Ogbete Market to the Enugu State Government House was going well until we reached the government house. Along the way we noticed a group of thugs joined the protests.
“The governor came out but refused to speak up and address the protestors, instead he addressed the thugs. The thugs tried to fight us but we maintained peace because we recognized their plan.
“We made sure the youth remained calm yet the governor refused to answer our questions! Instead he walked out on us, unapologetically, with the thugs following him. We made it clear that we knew the people he was pretending to address were paid thugs.
“As we have been saying: The movement won’t stop! We come in peace as always!”
Enugu! 🗣Today our lives were threatened and we are making it clear that if ANYTHING happens to any single one of us or any protestors, let it be known that it was done by the ENUGU STATE GOVERNMENT! @phynofino @ZoroSwagbag @iam_kcee @masterkraft_
