A position has been taken as to the death of a teenager hawker, murdered via a stray bullet on the day the Yoruba Nation rally held at the Ojota Area of Lagos.
Jumoke Oyeleke who was reported to have been hit by a stray bullet, has been subjected to an autopsy test. The test surprisingly revealed that she died of a stray bullet.
Relying on the autopsy test result signed and released by one Dr. SS Soyemi of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Jumoke was said to have died of “Haemopericardium, disruption of the heart and lungs and missile injury to the chest.”
Hemopericardium refers to blood in the pericardial sac of the heart. It is clinically similar to a pericardial effusion, and, depending on the volume and rapidity with which it develops, may cause cardiac tamponade.
This result is a close contradiction of the press release addressed to Lagosians by the police. It was also a followup to the warning from the Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Hakeem Odumosu.
Odumosu earlier said no rally is allowed to hold in the state, though resisted and defied by the courageous belief of those who are earnestly supporting the immediate disintegration of Nigeria. They flaunted their banners, sung etc.
The action of the people was said to have infuriated the police who fired teargas canisters, including water cannons.
This didn’t deter the agitators who returned to their point of convergence and effected their rally from where they left off.
The next action from the security operatives had everyone at the rally scampering to safety as gunshots sounded from different directions.
When the situation became a bit calm, Jumoke, who was said to be displaying drinks at a shop close by, was seen lying in a pool of blood.
She was reported to have been hit by a stray bullet when security operatives were dispersing the crowd at the rally.
