Mr Macaroni donates N500k To family of late Jumoke

Mr Macaroni, made this known on Saturday via his Twitter page, where he also revealed that he visited the family.

Agitators for the Yoruba Nation gathered at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota two weeks ago amid the presence of armed policemen and soldiers.

Jumoke, 25, who displayed soft drinks at her boss’ shop located in a compound close to the rally ground when security men chased some agitators into the premises, was hit by a stray bullet and she died on the spot.

In a series of tweets, Mr Macaroni wrote, “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 then shared a fundraising link for the family, calling on all members of the public to donate.

He wrote further, “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.

“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. Very very.” (sic)

The comedian also shared a video posted by one Dabira who reportedly visited the family the following day Jumoke was slain. She said that was where the victim’s mother was living at the time of the young lady’s killing.
