Oduduwa Nation Rally: Salesgirl, Jumoke, Finally Laid To Rest
Jumoke Oyeleke, the salesgirl who was allegedly killed by stray bullets during the Yoruba nation rally on July 3 has been buried.
25-year-old Jumoke was laid to rest in Atan Cemetery amid tears in the Yaba area of Lagos around 12am on Friday.
It was earlier reported that the 25-year-old girl Jumoke, who displayed soft drinks at her boss’ shop in a compound close to the rally ground, was hit by bullets reportedly fired by a security operative dispersing Yoruba Nation agitators at Ojota, Lagos State.
However, the police denied responsibility for her death, saying its officers did not fire a single live bullet at the rally.
The family and sympathizers in July held a candlelight procession in her honour.
