The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has mourned that one of his drivers died as a result of the #EndSARS protest in Abuja on Wednesday.
He narrated that the driver, Mr. Yohanna Shankuk, was hit by a vehicle around the Berger area of Abuja.
According to Festus Keyamo, the driver died as a result of the protest by youths against police brutality and extortion in the country.
He made this known on his Twitter handle on Thursday.
He 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.”
According to the Minister, he said that some criminal elements have mixed with genuine protesters to unleash terror on citizens and members of the Nigeria Police Force.
