On behalf of the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Usman Alkali, Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Mr Echeng Echeng, delivered cheques totaling N9 million and 300,000 naira to the families of deceased thirteen police officers posted to the Command.
The gesture is part of the Inspector-General of Police’s family welfare insurance policy, which aims to provide assistance to the families of police personnel killed in the line of duty.
The gesture also aims to inspire officers to achieve greatness while performing their tasks, assuring them that their well-being is of paramount significance to the Force’s administration.
While presenting the cheques to the beneficiaries, Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Mr Echeng, thanked the Inspector-General of Police for his tireless efforts in ensuring a good welfare package for Force personnel and urged the beneficiaries to use the money wisely by investing in a profitable venture that will alleviate the needs of the dependents left behind.
The Commissioner of Police also promised the Inspector-General of Police that the Command’s officers and men will continue to do everything possible to ensure Anambra State’s and Nigeria’s peace, security, and safety.
He said that the Command had received comparable checks from the Inspector-General of Police in the previous three months, which had been given to the recipients.
The families thanked the Inspector-General of Police and pledged to make good use of the money. They were very happy for the kind gesture showed to them by men of the Nigerian police force. This is coming days after they lost their family member who works with the police.
