Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, through the State Security Trust Fund, Thursday compensated each of the families of the six police officers killed in Lagos during the EndSARS protests with N10m.
He presented cheques to widows and children of the officers at the 14th town hall meeting on security in fulfillment of the promise by the state government during a meeting with police officers at the State Police Command.
The slain officers were; Yaro Edward, an Assistant Superintendent of Police; Inspector Ayodeji Erinfolami; Inspector Samsom Ehibor; Inspector Aderibigbe Adegbenro; Inspector Igoche Cornelius and Sergeant Bejide Abiodun.
Sanwo-Olu also announced scholarship awards to children of the slain officers up to the university level.
He said the compensation was the state government’s modest reward for their gallantry, saying the gesture would help the families to heal from their losses.
