A teenager simply identified as Kofo was killed by a stray bullet when some hoodlums clashed with  personnel of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in  Idi Oro area of  Ibadan during Saturday’s local government election in Oyo State.

NAN reports that the girl was said to have gone to a pharmaceutical shop to buy some drugs when she met her untimely death.

It was gathered from residents that some hoodlums were fomenting trouble in the area when personnel of the  NSCDC in the state were called in  to quell the violence.

The residents alleged that  the girl  was  killed by a stray bullet belonging to the NSCDC in the ensuing clash.

The hoodlums thereafter attacked  the NSCDC Divisional Office in Ibadan North West Local Government Council at Ekotedo, vandalising the premises.

It was also gathered that officers of the NSCDC later mobilised and repelled the  attack.

The spokesman of the NSCDC in the state, Mr Olusegun Oluwole, who confirmed the incident, however, said that men of the command were not responsible for the killing of the teenager.

Oluwole said the hoodlums were already shooting before  the arrival of the NSCDC team.

He told newsmen that the case was  now under investigation by the police.

“Our men are not responsible for what happened, but I can tell you now that the case is with the police,’’ he said.
