The Lagos State Police Command has debunked rumour of its operative killing 14-year-old girl during the Yoruba nation protest in Lagos on Sunday.

The Police in a statement titled, “Re: Alleged Killing of 14 year-old Girl at Oodua Rally in Lagos”, signed by Lagos State Police Public Relation Officer (PPRO), CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi sighted by Hybrid News Nigeria debunked the rumour of the killing of 14 year-old girl by police bullet at the venue of the Oodua Republic Mega Rally in Ojota, Lagos.

According to the statement, “The Command hereby wishes to debunk the rumour and state categorically that it’s a calculated attempt to create confusion and fears in the minds of the good people of Lagos State and the country at large.

“The Command did not fire a single live bullet at Ojota rally today. The said corpse was found wrapped and abandoned at a distance, far from Ojota venue of the rally, behind MRS Filling Station, inward Maryland, on the other side of the venue, with dried blood stains suggesting that the corpse is not fresh. After a close look at the corpse, a wound suspectedly sustained from a sharp object was seen on it.

“The news is false and mischievous. The Command therefore urges the general public to disregard the news and go about their lawful normal daily activities while investigation to unravel the incident will commence immediately.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Olusegun Odumosu, therefore commiserates with the family of the found deceased and assures that thorough investigation will be carried out.

“The Command equally wishes to warn against the spread or peddling of fake and unconfirmed stories as such could be dangerous and counterproductive.”
