Tears Flow As Police Pays N21m Compensation To Families Of 10 Slain Officers In Abia


It was all tears as Abia State Police Command presented families of ten police officers who died in active service with cheques amounting to N21,477,050.80k.

The money was presented to the next of kin of the dead officers by the Abia State Commissioner of Police, Janet Agbede, in Umuahia, on behalf of the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba.

Performing the presentation at Abia State Police Command’s headquarters at Bende road, Umuahia, the CP, represented by ACP Jane Mbanefo, advised the benefitting families not to misuse the money.

Agbede explained that the money was part of the ongoing Group Life Insurance Welfare scheme of IGP Usman Alkali Baba for families of late police officers for the 2020/2021 policy year

Declaring IGP’s message to the families of the late officers, Agbede said the money would go a long way in alleviating the pains and sufferings of deceased officers’ families, adding that officers and men of the Nigerian Police Force would continue to discharge their duties of securing the nation.

One of the next of kin who spoke on behalf of others, Justice E. John, thanked the IG for the insurance welfare package, pointing out that the initiative showed that the sacrifices of the late officers were recognised even in death.
