Popular Nigerian comedian, Debo Adebayo also known as Mr Macaroni has given out the sum of N500,000 to the family of Jumoke Oyeleke, the lady who was shot dead during the Yoruba Nation protest in Ojota, Lagos.
The funnyman who visited the family of the deceased today July 17, 2021 made this known via his Twitter page.
The 25-year-old was killed two weeks ago when the Yoruba Nation agitators stormed the Gani Fawehinmi park, Ojota to demand an independent nation in the South-West region of the country.
Jumoke was reportedly displaying drinks at a shop around the protest venue when she was hit by a stray bullet and died on the spot.
In a series of tweets, Mr Macaroni called out to everyone to support the family of the deceased financially.
“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.”
As of the time of my visit, neither the government nor police force had taken responsibility. The family despite their state of mourning have been told to bear all responsibilities. This is heartbreaking”
The comedian also shared a fundraising link for the family, calling on all members of the public to donate.
