Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo has placed a N10 million bounty on the killers of four policemen in Sabongida Ora, Owan West Local Government Area of Edo, on July 14.

This was announced by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, after an emergency security meeting between the governor and security chiefs in Benin on Monday.

The bounty was the second to be announced after the gruesome killings of the policemen. The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris had also announced a N5m reward for information on the killers, as well as those who killed seven policemen at Galadimawa in Abuja on 2 July.

According to Osagie, the Benin meeting was attended by the heads or representatives of the Police, the Army, Department of State Security (DSS); Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC); and Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

Obaseki described the killing as appalling and ordered a comprehensive investigation into the killings and the arrest of the assailants.

“The governor pledged to support the families of the four policemen killed while on duty and maintained that the killers must be arrested and brought to book,” Osagie said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Obaseki had earlier condemned the ambush and killing of the four policemen on receiving report of the killings.

Media reports said the four policemen, attached to the Sabongida-Ora Divisional Police Headquarters, were killed at a road block at Uzebba-Aviosi junction along Ifon road, Sabongida-Ora on July 14 while on a routine patrol. (NAN)
