Dominic Joshua Foundation has donated the sum of N500,000 to offset bills of injured victims of the Lekki toll gate shooting during #EndSARS protests in Lagos.

Investment banker and Founder, Dominic Joshua Foundation, Dominic Joshua, said the gesture was in line with the foundation’s commitment to carry out philanthropic outreaches to assist victims during crisis.

Specifically, he said the fund was to offset medical bills and other supplies to help hasten the injured victims’ recovery.

He described the incident as an unfortunate event that should never have occurred, especially in a peaceful protest where the youth were demanding an end to police brutality and good governance. Announcing the donation, he said the cash gift was given to organisations on the frontline of the nationwide protest.
