Wole Soyinka centre condemns attacks on media houses

Wole Soyinka Centre has condemned the attack on some television centres by suspected hoodlums.

The affected television centres are the Television Continental (TVC) and Channels television.

Apparently following the shooting of peaceful #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate on Tuesday by security operatives, some youths in Lagos State have been on rampage burning government offices and some media houses.
