Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu did not order a crackdown on End SARS protests, the state government insists.

Information Commissioner, Gbenga Omotoso spoke on Wednesday in an interview with Arise News.

Omotoso denied Sanwo-Olu stopped event centres from renting their facilities to organisers of programmes commemorating the October 20 anniversary.

The commissioner disclosed that the governor actually interceded when such case was recorded.

He recalled how some planners of a memorial gathering visited the governor some days ago.

The citizens complained they were being blocked from using the Landmark Centre in Oniru.

Omotoso said the governor immediately put a call through to the manager.

“The man stated that the governor never issued such order, adding that they had not spoken for several months.

“This was to the hearing of the protest organisers that came to make the complaint. They even recorded the call.

“We did not order any event centre not to allow them to hold their memorial protest,” Omotoso clarified.
