The family of Jumoke Oyeleke who was shot dead at the Yoruba Nation rally in Ojata, Lagos has been gifted the sum of N500 000 by Comedian, Debo Adebayo popularly known as Mr Macaroni.

The comedian revealed through his Twitter page that he visited the family on Saturday.

Jumoke was shot dead two weeks ago when the agitators for the Yoruba Nation assembled at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota amid the presence of armed policemen and soldiers.

She was hit by a stray bullet as the security men chased some agitators into the premises where she displayed soft drinks at her boss’ shop.

In a set of tweets, Mr Macaroni wrote,

“I visited the family of the late Jumoke Oyeleke; the 25yrs old that was killed during the Yoruba Nation Rally. They need all the support they can get right now. I have donated N500,000 today and I plead with all those who can to kindly support the family.”

Mr Macaroni also went ahead to shared a fundraising link for the family for the public to donate generously.

In his tweet, he wrote,

“Also important to note is that Jumoke (the deceased) was the breadwinner of the house. She was a sales attendant at a beverage store and she used the little she made to sustain her mother and 3 siblings. As it is, the family has nothing.”
