The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has lost one of his drivers to the #EndSARS protest in Abuja.
Keyamo said the deceased, Yohanna Shankuk, was run over by a vehicle who took one way due to the road bA lock around the Berger area of Abuja on Wednesday.
The minister said Shankuk died as a result of the protest by youths against police brutality and extortion in the country.
He made this known in a series of tweets on Thursday.
He said, “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.”
