Iyana Ipaja protest: School pupil killed by stray bullet

A young school pupil has been killed after being hit by a stray bullet during a clash by police and commercial motorcycle riders today at Iyana-Ipaja.

Policemen trying to disperse the protest, which has since been hijacked by hoodlums, fired bullets in the crowd, hitting and killing the little girl in the process, Sahara reporters reported.

Meanwhile, the state government has reiterated its commitment not to reverse the decision, sparking criticisms from far and near.
