The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Saturday, October 17, paid a condolence visit to the family of Mr Iloamauzor killed during the #EndSARS protest in Surulere on Monday, October 12.
The deceased, who was a bystander during the protest, died when one of the bullets fired by police officers in the area to disperse the protesters hit him.
Governor Sanwo-Olu, during his visit, commiserated with Mrs. Ngozi Iliamauzor, the widow of the deceased. According to him, he was close to tears during the visit but he still offered words of comfort to her. He pledged to support and hopefully make life easier for the widow.
Governor Sanwo-Olu wrote on his Twitter handle, ”There are no words I could have said to Mrs Ngozi Iloamauzor today that can make up for her loss, but as governor, I had to take responsibility. As a human being, I was close to tears but my words to her were of strength and self-care. We will work to provide justice for her. As a state, we will also support and hopefully make her life easier. The state Attorney General, Mr Moyosore Onigbanjo SAN joined me for the visit and he will be providing me regular updates on the case.”
