The Zamfara State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Bunu, has presented N23.5 million to 21 next of kin of officers who lost their lives while in active service.
Bunu, while presenting the cheques on Monday, appreciated the national leadership of the police force for the “kind” gesture and “persistent” concern for the welfare of serving and retired police officers in the state, as well as the families of late officers.
The police commissioner described the gesture as timely, saying it would go a long way in alleviating the suffering being encountered by families of deceased officers.
According to him, it will equally boost the morale of the serving personnel to continue to put in their best in the ongoing campaign against activities of criminal elements across the country.
