It has been confirmed that Jumoke Oyeleke, the salesgirl who died during Yoruba Nation rally in Lagos on July 3 was killed by bullet injury.
This is according to an autopsy report.
Recall that the 25-year-old girl was hit by bullets reportedly fired by a security operative dispersing Yoruba Nation agitators at Ojota, Lagos State.
Viral images on social media also showed that bullets ripped open the victim’s stomach.
Reacting, the Lagos State Police Command in a statement issued by its Public Relations Officer, Olamuyiwa Adejobi, denied that the girl died as a result of the bullets fired by its security operatives.
Adejobi claimed the corpse was found wrapped and abandoned at a distance, far from the venue of the rally, with dried blood stains, adding that the corpse is not fresh.
However, an autopsy report which was released and signed by one Dr. S.S. Soyomi of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, indicated that the 25-year-old died after she was hit by a stray bullet.
According to Doctor Soyomi Jumoke died from “haemopericardium, disruption of the heart and lungs and missile injury to the chest.”
