Men of the Lagos Police Command on Saturday fired shots at Yoruba Nation agitators who had gathered at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota, Lagos.
This was after some Yoruba nation agitators dared the security operatives by spreading banners and flyers to announce their arrival and presence.
The agitators were dispersed with gunshots and hot water from an armoured tank.
Some of the agitators were seen getting dragged into an armoured tank by policemen.
Speaking with journalists at the venue, State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, said no rally is allowed in Lagos.
Explaining the reason the police dispersed the protesters, Odumosu said that the time was not right for the protest.
It was gathered that the bullets fired by the security operative had severed the stomach of the girl, said to be 14 years.
She was reportedly displaying drinks at a shop when the bullet hit her.
Her body has been covered with a piece of cloth as crowd gathered at the spot.
The protest, which started with singing and chanting, got rowdy as members of the police force engage in sporadic gunshots and teargas shots.
The lifeless body of the unknown girl was crowded by sympathisers at the scene.
