The deceased, a driver, was found dead on Monday after officers opened fire on protesters demanding an end to police brutality in the country.

The governor, who visited Ngozi in the company of Moyosore Onigbanjo, attorney-general of Lagos, assured her and the family of justice.

In a post on Twitter after the visit, Sanwo-Olu also promised that his government will provide support to the family.

“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,” he wrote.

“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.”
