Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has confirmed the killing of Jimoh Isiaq, one of the #ENDSARS protesters in the state by police.

Makinde also revealed that seven other protesters sustained injuries and are being treated at a hospital in the state. The governor noted that the ongoing nationwide #ENDSARS protest was a “strong indicator of a systemic failure”, and also showed the failure of the police in carrying out their duties of protecting the people.’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’.
