Popular comedian, Mr Maccaroni and other protesters had claimed the hoodlums came in BRT buses and have been asking how that came to be.
Here's the Governor's tweet condemning the attack after an outrage on social media;
''strongly condemn the attack of peaceful protesters by armed and unscrupulous elements trying to cause chaos in Alausa today. My government will never tolerate the attack of protesters. Security agents will immediately protect peaceful protesters from miscreants.''
