Families of 15 police officers who lost their lives while serving under Anambra State Police Command on Tuesday received a cheque worth nine million, one hundred thousand naira (N9,100,000).

The cheques were from the Inspector-General of Police Family Welfare Insurance Scheme, which seeks to boost the moral of officers while carrying out their duties.

Presenting the cheques to the families on behalf of the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Baba Alkali at the state police command’s headquarters, Police Commissioner, Echeng Echeng said the gesture was an initiative aimed at giving succour to the family of police officers who died in active service. 

He said, “The gesture is aimed at spurring officers to greatness while discharging their statutory duties with the assurance that, their welfare is of paramount importance to the administration of the force.”

The CP praised the Inspector-General of Police for his relentless efforts towards ensuring good welfare package for personnel of the Force, urging the beneficiaries to use the money wisely by investing in a profitable venture that would in turn, ameliorate the needs of the dependents left behind.

Echeng also assured the IGP that officers and men of the command would continue to put in their best to ensure peace, security and safety of Anambra State.
