Families of police officers who lost their loved ones during the Kano insurgencies have been presented with cheques of compensation by the Assistant Inspector General (AIG) in charge of zone, Mr David Omojola.
While presenting the cheques to some four selected victims, the AIG said that the gesture will be a continuous exercise to all police officers affected by the Kano and other states’ crisis.
15 year old Binta Ahmed was one of those compensated as she lost her father during one of the bombings in Kano.
Binta received a cheque of N500, 000.00 which she stated will help her alleviate some suffering especially in the area of her education.
Other beneficiaries including police officers who were injured expressed gratitude to the Nigeria Police for remembering them.
Only four families have been compensated so far.
However, the AIG has confirmed that the exercise will be a continuous one and all affected police officers will be compensated.
Meanwhile, the AIG has charged the beneficiaries to judiciously utilise the fund for the upkeep of their family, while their gratuity and other entitlement will continue to be paid to them or their next of kin.
