Daily Metro News NG
Some hoodlums attacked and killed two EndSARS protesters in Benin, the Edo State capital on Friday
One of the victims was shot dead while the second was macheted by the hoodlums at Ring Road near the palace of the Oba of Benin.
The protesters had converged at Ring Road, when hoodlums, who accused the protesters of preventing them from making money from daily sales of tickets to commercial drivers, swooped on them with guns and machetes, Daily Metro News gathered.
The hoodlums dispersed the protesters after killing two of them.
But the determined protesters later regrouped in a larger number and continued moving towards Benin and its environs.
They terminated the protest at Government House in Government Reservation Area (GRA).
In swift response, Governor Godwin Obaseki condemned the attack on the protesters in Benin, while urging police operatives to ensure adequate security for them.
