According to PUNCH, Opeyemi Yusuf was licking a lollipop, comfortably straddled to her grandma’s back en route to the market, when a bullet pierced through the back of their tricycle. .It hit Opeyemi in the head and penetrated to Mrs. Osayemi Victoria’s
head, killing them on the spot. Opeyemi was her mother’s only child, while the grandma, 57, was visiting when tragedy struck.
The tricycle they boarded ran into the middle of a gun battle between rival cult groups along Ishawo Road, Ikorodu, Lagos State on Tuesday. The bullet pierced through the nylon backside of the tricycle. The other two passengers, on the right and left, escaped unhurt. Opeyemi’s mother, Bukola, a teacher, said, “My mother came from Ekiti to Lagos.
She had spent one month with us. We were to go to the market together. She collected Opeyemi from me and put him on her back. But as we were on the way, I remembered that I left my phone at home and told her I was going to pick it. I told her to wait for me at the bus stop. It was long after when I was called that something terrible had happened. I got to the place and saw the bodies of my son and my mother.”…… R.I.P to them…….
