The FCT police commissioner, CP Sunday Babaji, has disbursed the sum of N15.9 million to the families of slain officers that lost their lives in active service.

CP Babaji, while presenting the cheques to the next of kins of the deceased officers at the police command headquarters in Abuja, on Saturday, said the disbursement was part of the welfare insurance policy of the force.

He said the families of 29 deceased police officers of the ranks of Assistant Superintendents of Police (ASP), inspectors, sergeants, and civilian staff attached to the command between 2020 and 2021 received the insurance cheques through their next of kin.

The police commissioner, while extending his condolences to the beneficiaries of the deceased, noted that the money presented was in no way a payment for the lives and services of their loved ones.

 “It is a way to show them that the force remembers the labour of their loved ones in life and death,” he said.

He, therefore, urged them to make meaningful use of the benefits to make life better in the absence of their benefactors.

One of the representatives of the beneficiaries while expressing his appreciation to the force, through the commissioner of police, promised to make judicious use of the token.

He prayed for God’s blessing on the command and the Nigeria Police Force.
