A yet-to-be identified man has reportedly been killed by a stray bullet at Orile Agege area of Lagos state during a party on Monday.

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.
