#EndSARS: Teenager falls off moving truck, dies in Delta
A 13-year-old boy died on Monday after falling off a moving truck during the #EndSARS protest in Sapele, Delta State.
He was said to have joined hundreds of other protesters who stormed the streets of Sapele to air out their grievances.
The young boy reportedly jumped on the back of the moving truck that was headed out of the ancient town, fell off and died of injuries sustained.
“He jumped on a moving truck that was heading outside town and the next thing was that he fell from the back of the moving truck and before we could rush him to the clinic, he died,” a witness narrated.
The corpse of the teenager was thereafter wrapped in the Nigeria green-white-green flag and put on the back of the open truck for display at the Amukpe area of Sapele.
The tragedy caused a massive traffic gridlock to and from Benin and Warri.
Meanwhile, hundreds of End SARS protesters have blocked the Sapele end of the Warri – Benin Highway as they demanded an end to the terror unleashed on Nigerians by the disbanded Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS.
