Nigerian actor and philanthropist, William Uchemba has supported the family of late Jimoh Isiaq who was shot during the #endSARS protest in Ogbomoso with the sum of N1 million naira.
The UN Ambassador had earlier requested for the contact information of the deceased’s family, as well as those of others who were killed during the protest.
William, keeping to his words, transferred N1 million to Jimoh Isiaq’s family and also revealed his intention to assist the family of the police officer who was shot in a friendly fire.
He took to his Instagram account to appeal to fellow Nigerians to also support the families of the victims.
His post reads,
THANKS GUYS I GOT HIM AND SENT 1Million to him.
I was able to reach the father of the young boy Jimoh isiaka that was killed my the police durning the peaceful protest in Oyo state and by the help of God I supported him with 1,000,000 (One million naira) in as much as I know that money can’t bring back the dead, the least we can do is to support them in any way we can.
I also need the contact of the family of the police men that was killed yesterday in Lagos and the other victims, I heard nothing has been done for them, please if you have their contact help me with it. And if you want to also support in any you can please do. We are all they have.
(and for the sake of transparency and integrity we will post whatever we got and share it for them accordingly).
My heart is broken because this people could have been my family members and loved ones.
Thank you @lekan_kingkong for the contact information
