Obiano donates N1m each to 17 slain officers’ families
The Anambra state government has made cash donations of one million naira to each of the 17 families of security officials who fell victim of unfortunate incidents in some parts of the state in the last six months.
Governor Willie Obiano who performed the function at the Governor’s Lodge, Onitsha, also compensated the family of the late president general of Omor community, Barrister Francis Onwuachi who was kidnapped and murdered.
Those affected were 11 police officers, four naval personnel and two personnel of the Nigeria Correctional Service.
Obiano, who expressed optimism that the aid would provide relief to the families of the officers who fell in the line of duty, explained that the amount was just a token to show appreciation for gallantly serving Anambra state and showing that they did not die in vain.
He said that it is also a way to motivate those who are still in active service, warning criminals in Anambra against indulging in criminal activities in the state or face the wrath of the law.
