The Lagos State Police Command has debunked the news making rounds that a 14-year-old girl was hit and killed by a police bullet at the venue of the Oodua Republic Mega Rally in Ojota, Lagos, on Saturday.

The Command, in its reaction through a statement signed by its Spokesperson, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, debunked the rumor and stated categorically that the rumor was a calculated attempt to create confusion and fear 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 the 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 suspected to have been 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 Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, therefore commiserates with the family of the found deceased and assures that a thorough investigation will be carried out.

The Command also warned against the spread or peddling of fake and unconfirmed stories as such could be dangerous and counterproductive.
