IG presents N2bn to families of deceased cops

The Inspector-General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun, on Thursday, presented N2.08bn cheques to families of police officers who died in active service in the last five years.

Presenting the cheques to 785 beneficiaries at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, Olukayode Egbetokun noted that no amount of money could equate to the lives of the deceased cops.

The money is a Group Life Assurance and IGP Family Welfare Scheme package.

Egbetokun said, “We appreciate the stewardship of President Bola Tinubu for his administration’s commitment towards the well-being of police officers, and we urge the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the money.

“We understand that no amount of money can bring back the lives of the officers lost, but this will help to cushion the effects of the gaps left behind.”

The Force Insurance Officer, CSP Lydia Ameh, stated that the cheque disbursement was made possible due to the paternal affection of the IG.
