The girl, a hawker, was reportedly killed by a stray bullet fired by the police.
The command’s spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, who reacted to the incident in a statement issued on Saturday evening, described the report as a rumour and a calculated attempt to create confusion and fears in the minds of the people.
He said police operatives deployed to the venue of the rally did not fire a single bullet during the demonstration.
According to him, the girl’s corpse was wrapped and abandoned behind MRS Filling Station, inward Maryland, which is more than two kilometres from the venue of the rally.
The spokesman stressed that the location where the corpse was found was on the other side of the venue, and had dried blood stains suggesting that it was not fresh.
He said: “After a close look at the corpse, a wound suspected to be from a sharp object was seen on it.”
Adejobi said the claim that a police bullet killed the young girl was false and mischievous.
