Yoruba Nation rally: Family to bury slain salesgirl in Lagos today

Jumoke Oyeleke, the salesgirl who was allegedly killed by a stray bullet during the Yoruba Nation rally in Lagos on July 3, will be buried today.

According to the family, the remains of the 25-year-old would be buried at the Atan Cemetery, Yaba, Lagos, around 11 am.

Agitators for the Yoruba Nation on July 3 gathered at the Gani Fawehinmi Park at Ojota amid the presence of armed policemen and soldiers.

Jumoke, who displayed soft drinks at her boss’ shop in a compound close to the rally ground when security men chased some agitators into the premises, was hit by a stray bullet.

While the police denied killing her, witnesses said she was hit when the police opened fire on protesters.

The state government later set up a coroner’s inquest to unravel the circumstances surrounding her death.
