Boko Haram Attack: 91 Police Families Receive N35.7 million compensation

September 5, 2013

The Assistant Inspector General of Police in-charge of Zone one, David Omojola,  has presented the sum of N35.7 million to the 91 families of police officers who lost their lives during the Boko Haram bloody attack in Kano.

Omojola said Thursday at Zone One Command of the police that the victims who were presented with their cheque were the third batch of victims’  families being assisted by the command,  adding that the money which is an insurance coverage for the officers and men was meant to alleviate the sufferings of the deceased  families and those who sustained injuries at various times in the course of their duties.

According to him, the money should not be seen as compensation to the families of the deceased because no amount of money can bring back those who lost their lives  or sustained injury in the course of service.
