According to him, “I know late Ediale, he is from Edo State. As a Nigerian and I am living in Edo State I decided to support the family.

I appealed to well-meaning Nigerians to do something for the family of the policemen. They died fighting for our society to be crime-free.

“If you can train the children to do it. The Edo State government and chairman of Esan Central local government should do something to immortalise him.”
