Akali Baba Usman, the Inspector General of Police, has presented a cheque of N26,170,760 to families of deceased officers, who died while in active service in Delta State.
The State Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Ali, who presented the cheque on behalf of the IGP said the cheques issued to the next of kin of the seven deceased officers, were part of the IGP insurance welfare scheme.
He said, “The family we compensated today are the people that lost their family members in the course of their job.’’
“This gesture exhibited by the IGP as the cheques will in no small way, act as a boost to the families and also to let them know that though their loved ones are no more, the force did not forget their sacrifices.’’
In another development, CP Ali decorated three newly promoted Chief Superintendents of Police to Assistant Commissioner of Police and five SPs to CSPs, charging them to see the promotion as more duty.
The Commissioner noted that it is not easy to be promoted. The promotion comes from God, promotion also comes with a lot of responsibility because to whom much is given, much is expected.
