An officer of the Oyo State command of Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) during the local government election in Ibadan on Saturday allegedly shot a teenager, simply identified as Kofo.
According to a source, the girl was sent on an errand to buy drugs at a pharmaceutical store when she met her untimely death.
Oyoaffairs gathered that the officers were alerted that some hoodlums were fomenting trouble when personnel of the NSCDC stormed the area to quell the crisis.
A resident who refused to mention his name told Daily Trust that the girl was accidentally shot when the officers were trying to scare away hoodlums at the polling unit.
As a result of the incident, youths in the area mobilized themselves and stormed the divisional office of the NSCDC office at Ekotedo and vandalized their properties.
