Ogun Dangles Rewards For Information On Those Behind Sagamu Monday Riot
Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has offered a reward for vital information from anyone on those behind the Monday’s Naira swap riot in Sagamu.
He promised that such information would be treated confidentially.
The governor announced the rewards to prospective whistleblowers, while speaking to newsmen during his visit to Sagamu, on Tuesday, on an on the spot assessment of the scope of the riot.
He described the riot as a daylight robbery and arson, adding that the attacks on banks, public and private facilities were more than a protest against the Naira swap policy.
The governor said the riot had political and criminal undertone, adding that some of the protesters attempted to break into the walls of banks and break into the vaults of the banks.
Abiodun, worried by the level of violent attacks, vowed that those behind it would be fished out and be made to face the full wrath of the law.
He sympathized with all those who lost one thing or the other, especially banks, during the riot, vowing to live up to his constitutional responsibilities of protecting lives and properties.

Normalcy has also been restored to the town after massive deployment of security forces to deal with the rioters.
