Yoruba Nation rally: Mr Macaroni donates N500K to family of slain Jumoke Oyeleke
Ace comedian, Mr. Macaroni has donated a sum of N500,000 to the family of 25-year-old, Jumoke Oyeleke, the shop attendant who was allegedly killed at the Yoruba Nation rally in Ojota, Lagos.
Mr. Macaroni disclosed this on Saturday via his verified Twitter handle @mrmacaronii.
Recall that on July 3 Jumoke was hit by a stray bullet and she died on the spot while displaying soft drinks at her boss’ shop located in a compound close to the rally ground when security men chased some Yoruba Nation agitators gathered at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota, Lagos.
In a series of tweets, Mr. Macaroni states, “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.”
The comedian also shared a fundraising link for the family, calling on all members of the public to donate.
“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,” he added.
