The teenager whose name cannot be ascertained as of press time was said to have joined the thousands of protesting youths who had stormed the streets of the town to push across their demand to the Federal Government to end the terror reign of the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS.

A 12 years old boy believed to be part of #EndSARS protesters died from injuries after he fell from a moving truck believed to be heading outside the town in Sapele, Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State.

“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.

The corpse of the teenager has been wrapped with the Nigerian flag, place on the back of the truck on open display at the Amukpe area of Sapele, causing massive traffic to commuters.

Meanwhile, the thousands of #EndSARS protesters who stormed the Sapele end of the Warri – Benin Highway, causing gridlock and untold hardship for travelers using that route have vowed not to back down.

The #EndSARS protesters mostly youths from Sapele and its environs for the second time in four days took over the highway as early as 9 am while another set marched through the town singing solidarity songs and disrupting activities, before stating their demand,  total disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad now known as Special Weapons and Tactical (SWAT) by the Inspector-General of Police and an end to police brutality.

The protesters are also demanding the quick fixing of the Benin/Sapele section of the road which has now become a nightmare for motorists.
