Ifeoluwa Oyeleke, the mother of a 14-year-old girl, Jumoke Monsurat, who was killed during the Yoruba Nation rally in Lagos on Saturday, says she has yet to see the corpse of her child.
The mother alleged that when she and her brother visited the Police Station where her corpse was believed to have been taken, the policemen on duty threatened to shoot them on their legs if they didn’t leave immediately.
She added that the policemen also threatened to fire a teargas canister at them.
She, however, did not state which Police Station they had visited.
Jumoke’s body was allegedly found sprawled on the ground in a pool of blood, with her stomach ripped apart shortly after policemen had opened fire to disperse those at the rally who were agitating for a separate nation for the Yoruba nation.
The police have, however, denied playing any part in Jumoke’s death, saying that the blood found around her corpse was dry and that it was an indication that the body was not fresh.
She stated that she would love to have a lawyer who would help her seek justice concerning the death of her daughter.
Meanwhile, Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu has ordered an investigation into the death of the 14 year-old.
