According to the Nation, A yam cake seller was yesterday killed by stray bullet allegedly shot by officers from Olosan Police Station.

The late Kudirat Adebayo, a mother of four, was murdered near the toll gate in Mushin.
The incident occurred around 6pm at Ogunmokun/Toll gate area, Mushin, Lagos.

The woman’s death led to fracas between the street boys and the officers.

Many scampered for safety as police shot sporadically to disperse the street boys protesting the woman’s death. They stormed the police station on motorcycles.

We learnt that the officers were chasing a ‘Yahoo yahoo’ guy who ran through Ogunmokun/Toll gate areas on motorcycle and heading towards Onipanu.

Policemen were said to have shot at him when it was impossible for them to nab him, but the bullet hit a woman selling yam cake (Ojojo) around Toll gate area.

Angered by the officers’ action, the boys mobilised themselves and headed to the Olosan Police Station.
Eyewitnesses said they were chased away with gun shots. About five of them were said to have sustained injuries.

  1. olopas needs orientation and discipline..whenever they are trigger happy or tensed,they lose control.imagine still shooting to disperse protesters knowing fully well more casualties may follow.rip to the innocent woman whose life was cut short while hustling for her daily bread.their family should seek justice and those involved should be prosecuted

  2. Now who is going to take care of the 4 children??
    We have no leaders at all in that country,
    No justice
    No light
    No water
    No school
    No food
    No Nigeria
    Really #Mass burial for the leaders

  3. Meanwhile, the pursued got away and a family with young children is left motherless. The police should take care of this family by paying heavy compensation to assuage the suffering occasioned by the faulty decision of their men.

  4. THE YAHOO BOY DOSENT HAVE WEAPON,YOU DON’T NEED TO SHOT,I BLAME IG FOR LACK OF TRAINING AND ANY INCIDENT CARRIED OUT BY POLICE.HE EMPLOY THEM WITHOUT A CHECK,ALOT OF THEM DRINK DIFFERENT KIND OF THING WHEN ON DUTY,THAT LADY IS MANAGING HER LIFE TO MAKE SURE HER FAMILY IS OK.THE JUDGEMENT NEED TO BE LIFE FOR LIFE,YOU CANT WASTE PEOPLE LIFE AND CONTINUE BEING ALIVE,USELESS NIGERIA POLICE OFFICER,IG NEED TO EMPLOY FROM OND NOT SECONDARY SCHOOL DROP OUT

  5. Why shoot an unarmed fraudster to prevent from escaping? Now the poor woman’s life is wasted. I hope the Police Force will take full responsibility for the upbringing of her four children until they complete University, or other career they choose. Life is precious. God have mercy on that family.

  6. Bok shoot unnecessary by police is all over Africa. Lack of proper training and drugs injections given to them maybe or ogogoro and Indian hemp
