Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment has stated that the ongoing #EndSARS protest has claimed the life of his driver.
He said the driver, Yohanna Shankuk, was knocked down in Abuja on Wednesday by a vehicle that took one-way to avoid advancing protesters.
The incident was said to have occurred at Berger Roundabout, Abuja.
The bereaved Minister tweeted: “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.”
