He explained that the enrolment would run from April 12 to April 15 at the state secretariat of Association of Retired Police Officers of Nigeria, situated at Kabala Doki Police Divisional Headquarters.

According to him, the exercise was to capture all retired officers and their spouses at no cost.

“This will ensure that they enjoy effective and subsidised health care services covered by Police Health Maintenance Organisation (Police-HMO) irrespective of their rank on retirement.”

He said those to be enrolled should come along with their letter of retirement and Identification Card to the capturing centre irrespective of their state of origin.

The PPRO said that the Commissioner of Police, Umar Muri, advised all retired officers in the state to take advantage of the opportunity and turn out en masse for the exercise.
