The family of a fifty- five -year-old driver, Ikechukwu Iloamuzor, who was killed by a stray bullet during the #EndSARS protest at Ojuelegba area of Lagos has approached the panel of inquiry to seek justice for the deceased and adequate compensation.
Mr Iloamuzor was shot while the police were trying to disperse protesters at Surulere and Ojuelegba axis on October 12th of last year.
In a petition before the panel, the wife of the deceased and his former employer, Sam Okafor demanded justice for the late Mr Iloamuzor and compensation for the family he left behind.
Mr. Iloamuzor was killed with several others injured while the police tried to disperse peaceful protesters who were demanding good governance, employment, and an improved standard of living in the country.
The Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, paid a visit to the family of the late Mr Iloamuzor, where he commiserated with them and assured them that some of the officers involved had been arrested and would be brought to book.
