Abia state Police command has disbursed N27.8 million to families of 35 personnel who died or were wounded in line of duty.


State Commissioner of Police, Kenechukwu Onwuemelie, who issued the cheques to the affected families on behalf of the Acting Inspector General of Police, IGP, Kayode Egbetokun, expressed deep concern over their plights.


He said the IGP and the Command had the moral duty to support and stand behind the families of their fallen heroes and heroines, with the financial support meant to help mitigate financial burden that might arise from the loss of their loved ones.

Onwuemelie restated the commitment of the Police to the welfare of their personnel, assuring that the command would never abandon the affected families.
