Following the swift
intervention of Nigerians in
raising over N4 million for the family of the brave Nigerian
Policeman, Sgt. Chuwkwudi Iboko who lost his life months after
defending Zenith Bank,
Owerri branch against
robbers, the management of
Zenith Bank have reportedly
compensated the family.



The management of Zenith
Bank has however offered to
foot the medical bills of the
two other policemen who
were shot during the attack
and also offered to sponsor the education of the children
of the late two cops, Sergeant
Chukwudi Iboko and Sergeant Sunday Agbo.


The Imo State Police
spokesperson, Ezike further
noted that the bank has also
agreed to be giving monthly
allowances to the families,
including a promise of scholarship to any level of
education for the children of
the deceased officers.


He said; "Let me state for the avoidance of doubt that the trio of
Sergeant Chukwudi Iboko, Sergeant Sunday Agbo and Sergeant Otu Attang,
remain our heroes. They were gallant, professional, and courageous;
they displayed encouraging passion in defence of lives and property.
The Nigeria Police Force,
under the able leadership of the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim
Idris, has not, did not and will not abandon them and/ or their
families. "As you are well aware, the Nigeria Police Force is a
Federal Government agency governed by laws, rules and regulations in
all matters, including financial matters. Be rest assured, therefore,
that the financial rights, entitlements, benefits and even privileges
of these our own shall be fully paid, and on time too.


"The two deceased officers were recommended for posthumous promotion,
while the injured officer was also recommended for a special promotion
to his next rank. I am very confident that very soon, the Inspector-
General of Police will graciously announce the promotions.

"Similarly, the command is in constant touch with the families of the
deceased officers. We have made and will continue to make financial
assistance to cushion the effect of the loss of their loved
breadwinners."
