According to witnesses, the woman who was killed by a stray bullet was a labourer who was trying to make her way to Old Garage, where labourers usually converge every morning to seek for jobs from passerby who may need their services at their homes.

It was gathered that traders from the Ikirun/Ilorin Motorpark and some suspected thugs working in the park had Friday night beat up another transporter, who was relaxing at a nearby “joint” after returning from a road trip.

The assaulted man was said to have arrived the park early on Saturday morning with his own group for a reprisal attack.
