FCT Police Commissioner, CP Sunday Babaji on Wednesday June 15 2022 presented Cheques to families of 33 slain Police Officers whose breadwinners met their untimely death in the service of protecting lives and property of Nigerians.
The families comprising mostly children of the deceased officers and other relations were advised by the CP to ensure the Cheques whose amounts varied, but totaled about #7million were utilized to cater for the children/immediate family left behind.
