Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara has donated N20,000,000 to the family of a police officer who died on active duty lately, Inspector Collins David.
David was slain while serving in the state command’s Ahoada Division.
Tammy Danagogo, the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), delivered the cheque to the widow of the dead cop on behalf of the governor at the command headquarters.
According to him, the gesture is the governor’s display of dedication to ensuring that the families of police officers who died in the line of duty are not left desolate.
Danagogo stated in a statement issued by the Head of the Press Unit, Juliana Masi, that the action is in keeping with the Rivers State Government’s security architecture, which includes collaboration with the police and other security agencies in the battle against crime.
The statement praised the state Police Command’s unwavering efforts, particularly the strategic fight against criminality led by the new Commissioner of Police, Nwonyi Polycarp-Emeka.
In his answer, Polycarp-Emeka called Governor Fubara’s monetary gift to the late officer’s family “an uncommon gesture of encouragement in the country.”
