14-year-old street trader killed by stray bullet at Yoruba Nation rally in Lagos



A teenage girl has been reportedly killed after policemen opened fire in an attempt to forcefully evict Yoruba nation rally demonstrators from the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota, Lagos.

This comes after the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, addressed journalists at the venue where he stated that no rally is allowed in the state.

However, some Yoruba nation agitators dared the security operatives by spreading banners and flyers to announce their arrival and presence.

A few minutes later, shots were fired and hot water from an armoured tank was sprayed to disperse them.

Reports also said some of the agitators were seen getting dragged into an armoured tank by policemen.
