The Commissioner of Police in Ondo State, CP Taiwo Jesubiyi, on Friday presented cheques worth N13,316,277 to 27 families of late police officers in the state.
Jesubiyi made this known in a statement made available to newsmen by the command’s spokesperson, SP Olufunmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, in Akure.
The CP explained that the financial commitment was one of the welfare packages of the Inspector-General of Police, (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba, for the family of late officers who paid the supreme price while serving their fatherland.
Jesubiyi, while presenting the cheques to the beneficiaries who are the next of kin of the late police officers, urged them to use the money for their upkeep and welfare of their respective families.
He added that the cheques were meant to ameliorate the pains of the deceased immediate families.
Responding on behalf of the beneficiaries, Mrs Odugbo Precious, appreciated the effort of the IGP in ensuring that the families of late police officers did not suffer after the demise of their loved ones who served the country.
She, therefore, prayed for the progress of the Nigeria Police Force.
