The governor in his condolence visit to the deceased’s wife, Ngozi, assured her that the killers of her husband would be brought to justice.

He said,

“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.

Speaking in a tone of deep regret and pain, Ngozi recalled that her late husband was a lovable man throughout his life.

Sanwo-Olu, on his official Twitter page @jidesanwoolu, on Thursday, October 15, listed the officers as Bagou Michael, Ekpoudom Etop, Nnamdi Majura, and Akinyemi Benson.
