The police command in Borno State on Wednesday presented N400, 000 to families of two police who died in active service in the state.
The two police officers are Raymond Ishaku and Bawa Abdullahi.
The Commissioner of Police in Borno, Clement Adoda, presented the money at a ceremony in Maiduguri.
Mr. Adoda, who represented the Inspector General of Police (I-G) at the event, said that the money was the deceased police officers’ entitlements at the Police Insurance Welfare Scheme (POLIWS).
He also presented N30, 000 cash and a gallon of cooking oil to each of the families as I-G’s Christmas gift.
Responding, the families thanked police authorities for the gesture and pledged to use the money judiciously.
