Youths in Benin City, capital of Edo State reportedly brought out AYELALA (Goddess of truth and justice) so government officials can swear they weren’t the ones who deliberately opened the prison for the prisoners to escape.
Recall that inmates of two prisons in Edo state escaped in the middle of the nationwide #EndSARS protests. While government officials blame hoodlums for high jacking the peaceful protest, many Nigerians believe that Government officials deliberately freed the inmates so they can blame the chaos on the #EndSARS protest.
Since the youths in Benin didn’t believe the story told by Government officials, they reportedly brought out the Goddess of Truth and Justice so officials would swear they didn’t have anything to do with the jailbreaks.
