The family of the girl who was killed by the men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps during the council poll in the Idi-Oro area of Ibadan, Oyo State, on Saturday has called for justice.
The family called on President Muhammadu Buhari; Senate President, Bukola Saraki; the Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi; and Civil Society Organisations to help them secure justice over their daughter’s death.
The victim, 18-year-old Lateefat Abubakar, who sat for her last Secondary School Certificate Examination paper three days before her death, was shot in the head on her way to a drugs store by one of the NSCDC personnel who were mediating in a fight in the area.
The deceased’s elder sibling, Gbemisola, said, “All we seek is justice. What he (the NSCDC personnel) told us is a pure lie. How can a security man say his gun discharged while he was coming down from the vehicle?”
The father of the deceased, Kolawole Abubakar, said Ajimobi had yet to pay the family a condolence visit, while also calling for justice to be served.
