Police Compensates Families Of Slain Officers

The Nigeria Police Force has compensated the families of 91 officers who lost their lives to terrorist activities of the banned Boko Haram sect in Kano State.


Presenting the cheques totaling N35.7 million to the beneficiaries on Thursday, assistant inspector general of police in-charge of Zone One, David Omojola, urged them not to see the sum as a way of paying for the loss as no amount of money could bring back their dead, but as a way of assisting them.
