A yet-to-be identified girl was killed by stray bullet at the Yoruba Nation rally held at Ojota Park, Lagos on Saturday.
The protest, which started with singing and chanting, got rowdy as security operatives shot in the air, and also teargassed protesters.
The lifeless body of the girl was found and crowded around by sympathizers at the scene.
A resident who pleaded to remain anonymous told reporters that the girl who was about to open her shop was hit by the stray bullet when the protest went rowdy.
Police visited the scene of the incident, and took her dead body away.
