Share This
The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has ordered a thorough investigation to the death of a 14-year-old girl in Ojota during the Oodua Republic Mega Rally on Saturday, July 3, 2021.



This was disclosed in a press statement by Attorney-General/Honourable Commissioner for Justice, Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN). 

He said: "Our attention has been drawn to the death of a 14-year-old girl in Ojota during the Oodua Republic Mega Rally on Saturday, 3rd of July, 2021.

We commiserate with the family of the deceased and a Coroner’s Inquest has immediately been requested in line with section 14 and 15 of the Coroners’ Systems Law, Laws of Lagos State 2015, to determine the cause and circumstances of death.

'By Section 14(1) (d) of the Coroners’ System Law of the State: A report of death shall be made to any of the agencies for the report of death or the office of the Coroner and be subject to post-mortem examination where there is reasonable cause to believe that the cause of death was: violent, unnatural or suspicious.”

"Section 15(1) and (9) further enjoins the Coroner to hold an inquest whenever he or she is informed that the death of the deceased person was in a violent, unnatural or suspicious situation or believes an inquest is desirable following the report of a reportable death.

"As a government, the security and wellbeing of citizens are of utmost importance to us. The State assures the public that everything will be done to ensure that the cause of death is known. The findings of this investigation will be made public in due course and appropriate sanctions meted out to anyone found culpable."

 INFORMATION CARRIER gathered that despite the heavy presence of armed policemen around Gani Fawehinmi Park, Ojota, Lagos, agitators of the Yoruba nation still assembled at the park chanting different songs of freedom and flying their flags, saying the nation is bleeding and they need Oodua Nation.

The agitators insist that it is time to have a separate nation for the Yoruba ethnic group because they are suffering and are being marginalised.

They insisted that their rallies are peaceful and had taken place in other southwestern states before Lagos State.

“We are not fighting with anyone, we just want Yoruba nation now. Give us our own nation, Nigeria is not working anymore,” one of the agitators told Channels Television.

The agitators surfaced around 11.20 am when the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, was addressing journalists.

The Commissioner told journalists that the heavy security presence is to ensure that the protest is not hijacked by hoodlums.

“We are here because we don’t want the rally to be hijacked by hoodlums, we not chasing anybody away,” the CP told Channels Television.

Before the agitators arrived at the scene of the protest, the police said they are prepared to ensure that there is no breakdown of law and order.

A combined unit of Op Mesa, Task Force, Rapid Response Squad, and police officers led by the Commissioner Of Police, Hakeem Odumosu were seen at the park calming those already gathering for the rally.
