The #EndSARS protest calling for the scrapping of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is spreading across the country like a wildfire.
Saturday saw a remarkable amount of protest in different cities across the country. In some cities, the demonstrations led to clashes between the protesters and Police officers.
The protest in Ogbomosho led to the killing of one young Nigerian, Jimoh Isiaq and several others sustained injuries.
I have received with deep sadness the news of the passing of one of our children, Jimoh Isiaka, who was shot during the ENDSARS protest in Ogbomoso. He later died at Bowen University Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso, earlier today. pic.twitter.com/3elzVeRkwk — Seyi Makinde (@seyiamakinde) October 10, 2020
