The mother of the girl killed at the Yoruba Nation campaign held in Lagos on Saturday, has narrated how she departed her daughter to be called a few moments after that her daughter has been killed.
Mrs Ifeoluwa Adeeko also clarified that her deceased daughter, Jumoke was 25 years and not 14 as the media had been speculating.
She said her daughter just got a sales job two months ago to her death.
“We both left home at about 7:30 a.m. on Saturday and bade each other goodbye. I was still in Ikeja working when I received a call to return home.
“I work as a street sweeper; I also help people to clean their compounds, and when she saw the stress I was going through, she took up a job as a salesgirl; unfortunately, she was killed less than two months after she started the work.”
The mother lamented: “She was my first child, but I have divorced her father and remarried. I don’t want her to die in vain; she went to work as a salesgirl to assist me and her siblings.
“She was my helper and my gist partner; I am going to miss her. I want the person who killed my daughter to be arrested and prosecuted, because I know that I can’t get her back.”
She also debunked the statement from the police that her daughter was not killed by stray bullets.
