The ongoing #EndSARS protest has claimed the life of the driver of Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo.
Festus Keyamo announced this in a tweet on Thursday.
The Minister said the driver, Yohanna Shankuk, was knocked down in Abuja on Wednesday by a vehicle that took one-way to avoid advancing protesters.
The late Shankuk was on his way to Keyamo’s private office before the incident took place.
The incident was said to have occurred at Berger Roundabout, Abuja.
I regret to announce that my driver, Mr. Yohanna Shankuk, died yesterday in Abuja as a result of the protests. A vehicle that saw advancing protesters at Berger roundabout, made a U-turn, took the one-way back and ran over him as he was making his way on foot to my private office
