“The family despite their state of mourning have been told to bear all responsibilities. This is heartbreaking”
More than two weeks after the teenage girl, Jumoke Oyeleke, was felled by police stray bullet at the recent Yoruba Nation protest in Ojota, Lagos, an Ace comedian, Debo Adebayo a.k.a Mr Macaroni has donated N500,000 to the family.
Persecondnews had reported that on Saturday, July 3, 2021 Jumoke hired as sales girl at a shop was allegedly hit by a stray bullet fired by the police while dispersing protesters.
The Yoruba Nation agitators had gathered at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota in spite of warning by police not mass there for any rally.
Lagos State Government and the Police have yet to reach out to the family.
The Lagos State Police command, has, however, denied killing the girl.
Macaroni announced the gesture on Saturday via his Twitter page after he visited the bereaved family.
“I visited the family of the late Jumoke Oyeleke; the 25yrs old that was killed during the Yoruba Nation Rally.
“They need all the support they can get right now. I have donated N500,000 today and I plead with all those who can to kindly support the family.
“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,” he tweeted.
