Comedian Mr Macaroni, Debo Adebayo, has donated a sum of N500,000 to the family of Jumoke Oyeleke, who was shot dead at the Yoruba Nation rally in Ojota, Lagos.

Mr Macaroni disclosed his donation to the family of the slain Jumoke via his Twitter handle on Saturday, where he also stated that he had paid a visit to her family.

WuzupNigeria reported that agitators for the Yoruba Nation gathered at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota two weeks ago amid the presence of armed policemen and soldiers.

25-year-old Jumoke, who displayed soft drinks at her boss’ shop located in a compound close to the rally ground when security men chased some agitators into the premises, was hit by a stray bullet and she died on the spot.

He wrote further, “Also important to note is that Jumoke (the deceased) was the breadwinner of the house. She was a sales attendant at a beverage store and she used the little she made to sustain her mother and 3 siblings. As it is, the family has nothing.

“As of the time of my visit, Neither the government nor police force had taken responsibility. The family despite their state of mourning have been told to bear all responsibilities. This is heartbreaking. Very very.” (sic)
