On behalf of my family and I, and the government of the federation, I convey our heartfelt condolences to the Oromoni family, the government and people of Lagos State and give the firm assurance that this incident will be thoroughly investigated and the appropriate punishment meted out to all those who are culpable.” The President urged the Police to continue the ongoing investigation until they get to the root of the matter in order for the law to take its course, assuring that justice would be done, no matter who was involved.
