ONE of the protesters involved in the End SARS protest in Ughelli was Thursday night confirmed dead following a clash with the police at the Otovwodo junction axis of Ughelli, Ughelli North local government area of Delta State.
The death of the protester is coming on the heels of the death of a police corporal identified as Corporal Stanly Etaga who was also killed during the clash.
The AK47 rifle and ammunition of the slain policeman who until his death was attached to the Ughelli ‘A’ Division police station, Ughelli, was also unaccounted for at the end of the melee that ensued.
However, attempts by the protesters to overrun the Ughelli ‘A’ Division police station on Thursday night were resisted by the policemen who mounted guard to prevent the protesters from gaining access to the station leading to sporadic gunshots in the area with vehicles diverted from the road leading to the police station.
