Police Will Compensate Families Of Slain Policemen in Jigawa Attack, AIG

Ringim Local Government Area of Jigawa State was attacked on Saturday.

 

The Nigeria Police said on Tuesday that it would compensate the families of the three policemen who were killed during last Saturday’s bomb attack in Ringim Local Government Area of Jigawa State.

 

The Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) Zone 1, David Omojola, said this in an interview inspecting the scenes of the attacks.

 

Mr. Omojola, however, said that no amount of compensation could adequately assuage the feelings of the loss of human lives by the police

 

“We lost policemen in the course of national service, three of them; I want to extend the Inspector- General of Police (IGP’s) condolence to the families of the deceased and as well encourage our policemen to be up-and-doing; security challenges are bound to come but sooner or later they will fizzle out.

 

“We have standard procedure in the police and we are going to compensate the families of the deceased but you should understand one thing; no amount of money or compensation can assuage the feelings; the compensation cannot bring back their love ones that have been killed in service,” he said.

 

The AIG said that no arrest had so far been made in connection with the incident but “I am assuring you that investigation is in full gear to fish out the criminals“.

 

Earlier, the Chairman of Ringim Local Government Area, Murtala Abubakar, thanked the police for gallantry during the bomb attack.

 

The Jigawa State Governor has said the attack was carried out by armed robbers and not insurgents.
