Families Of Police Officers Killed In Line OF Duty Receive N29Million.

The Nigeria police force (NPF) has presented cheques of N29,836,378 million to families of 51 police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. Taiwo Lakanu, assistant inspector-general of police in charge of Zone 7, Abuja, presented the cheques to the beneficiaries in Abuja, saying it was the duty of the force to take care of officers and their families.

“On behalf of the inspector-general of police (IGP), I will like to present these cheque leaves to you; it is symbolic,” he said.

He said the commissioner of police in the state under the zone would present the remaining cheques to other beneficiaries.

According to NAN, the beneficiaries cut across the FCT, Niger and Kaduna states which make up the zone.

Lakanu added that the late officers paid the supreme price to curtail crimes and criminality in the country.

“Without these officers, most of us will not be where we are today because they carry out our instructions, they are most sincerely appreciated,” he said.

Lakanu said Ibrahim Idris, the IGP, had restated his commitment to ensure that what accrued to the families of the deceased officers was given to them.

He condoled with the beneficiaries and assured them of continued support of the force.

Responding on behalf of the beneficiaries, Andrew Moses appealed to the force to continue to support the families.

He commended the IGP for “the fatherly care” and urged him not to relent in his efforts to support families of late officers.
