According to a Punch report, the deceased, identified as Omotayo, was a job seeker who had been hit by stray bullets when the gunmen opened fire on shops within the area.

The two other victims, 74-year-old Gbemisola Mumini and her 4-year-old granddaughter Timofe were alleged to have been outside one of the shops when the incident took place.
