Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has presented N10 million each to the wives of six officers killed during the EndSARS protest last month.
The governor did this to fulfil the promise he made to police officers during a meeting at police state command.
Some of our gallant police officers paid the supreme price for our security and safety during the recent EndSARS protests,” the governor said while presenting the cheque to the wives and children of the slain officers at the 14th Town Hall meeting on security held at Civic Centre on Victoria Island.
These are the officers deployed to protect our families from hoodlums but they were lynched in the violence. Today, I am happy to announce and present N10 million compensation through LSSTF to each family of the officers. All their children have also be placed on scholarship up to university level, courtesy of the State Government.”
Meanwhile, Governor Makinde has given out a sum of N 1million each to the families of 3 EndSARS protesters who lost their lives as a result of police shootings in Oyo state. Netizens have launched an attack on Sanwo-Olu, charging him to gift the victims of police shootings some money to better their lives.
