    Yoruba Nation: Lagos police charge Tajudeen Bakare with Jumoke Oyeleke’s murder

    One of the 48 Yoruba Nation protesters arrested by the police, Tajudeen Bakare, has been charged with the murder of a sachet water seller, Jumoke Oyeleke.

    This is according to a statement signed by the Communications Manager, Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Maxwell Adeleye.

    The statement read, “The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, has charged the 48 Yoruba Nation Protesters arrested on Saturday 3rd July 2021 in Ojota, Lagos before a Magistrate Court sitting in Yaba.

    “They were charged for Unlawful Assembly, Unlawful Society and Conducts likely to cause breach of Public Peace.

    “However, one of the arrested protesters, Tajudeen Bakare (the popular Ogboni Chief) was charged by the Police for the murder of a Sachet Water Hawker, Jumoke Oyeleke, killed by a stray bullet during the protest.
