The Lagos state government has presented a cash amount of N1million and a furnished two- bedroom apartment to the family of Jumoke Oyeleke, who was killed by a stray bullet who police engaged protesters during the recently held yoruba nation rally, Saharareporters reports.

Presenting the keys of the apartment to the bereaved family, senior special assistant to the Governor on administration said, ” We are in the new place of the family of the victim of Yoruba Nation Rally which took place a few months ago. We have been to her initial place of abode. ”

” We have been in touch with the mother of the deceased, Mrs Ifeoluwa Oyeleke since the time of the incident, following up her state in every ramification to find out how she is doing, economically. ”

” Due to the compassionate nature of Governor Babajide Sanwo- Olu in ameliorating their suffering as possible, he felt if it is not possible to bring back the dead we can at least ameliorate the suffering of the family of the deceased. ”

” So, here we are at the place of abode, for Mrs Ifeoluwa Oyeleke with her three children and effectively present these keys to her and also present a little bit of a token of N1 million from the governor to help fit into the next phase of life. ”

Mother to the deceased, Mrs. Oyeleke thanked the state government for coming to the rescue of her family who she revealed life has been tough for. She further askee for an employment opportunity to enable her care better for her family.

In her words, ” Our former house was a rented apartment but we left because the house was sold to a developer and since I couldn’ t afford another house, we had to move to the shanty and we have been staying there for about a year before Jumoke died. ”

” It was a church member who allowed us to stay in the shanty. I work as a domestic assistant, I help people wash clothes, and clean their compounds. I thank the government for remembering me and my children. God will bless governor Sanwo- Olu and what happened to me will not be his portion. God will grant his heart desires. ”

” I want the government to help me find a profitable job so I can train my children properly. My children used to attend a private school but I enrolled them in a government school because I could no longer afford the fees of a private school. The house is rented and I cannot afford to renew the rent after the three years that was paid for so I would love to be employed profitably. ”

Reacting to the incident on social media, one Lekan Adejare wrote, ” Nice one by the Governor of that state. At least the life can’ t be returned but this will go a long way in making them feel better about the calamity that befell them.
