No fewer than 727 families of deceased police personnel have received financial support from the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

The Force revealed that the Inspector-General of Police, Dr. Olukayode Egbetokun, presented the bereaved families with the sum of N1.6 billion.

According to NPF, the financial support represents the insurance claim for the deceased officers for the years 2018/2019, 2021/2022, and 2022/2023 as part of the Nigeria Police Force’s Group Life Assurance Policy.

“This act of generosity is a token of appreciation from the Nigeria Police to honour the fallen heroes.”

He said the action underscored the steadfastness and commitment of the current police leadership to the well-being of police personnel and their families, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

“Today, we are poised to distribute cheques across five distinct categories, reflecting our diverse commitment to the beneficiaries.

“The first category comprises cheques amounting to N55.8 million for 311 beneficiaries, representing the remaining 5% balance of the Group Life Assurance Policy payments, Batches 9 and 10, for the 2021/2022 insurance year.

“The second category includes cheques totalling N761.5 million for 178 beneficiaries, representing 90% of the Group Life Assurance policy payments, Batches 15 and 17 for the 2021/2022 insurance year,” the IGP said.

The police boss added that the third category was a cheque of N567.5 million covering 78 beneficiaries as 100 percent Group Life Assurance policy payment for Batch 9 of the 2022/2023 insurance year.

He stated that the fourth group consisted of cheques amounting to N96.9 million, which were distributed among 86 beneficiaries.

Furthermore, he mentioned that the last category comprised a single cheque worth N113.2 million.

“This payment covered the full amount owed to 149 beneficiaries, encompassing batches 6 and 7 for the policy year of 2022/2023,” the IGP added.
