The incident, occurred during an occasion allegedly organized by Orile Agege Branch Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) which took place on Olurinde street.

According to an eyewitness, who spoke under anonymity, the occasion attracted many union members and chieftains. However, as the occasion gradually progressed to its peak, one of the chieftains began to spray some Naira notes in response to the music that was playing.

Some area boys while eulogizing the NURTW chieftain started to pick some of the notes but were chased by his body guards and this resulted in a squabble.

In order to safeguard the chieftain, one of the body guards reportedly shot into the air to scare the crowd. But one of the area boys was hit by a stray bullet and he died on the spot.

Policemen from Elemere division were said to have intervened as people scampered for safety.

The NURTW state chairman, Tajudeen Agbede, was yet to address the media as at the time of filing this report.
