Inspector General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase, today commended the courage and gallantry displayed by officers of the Yobe State Police Command in containing the menace of insurgency in the state. “He is highly pleased that in spite of imminent challenges, the officers exhibited a high sense of patriotism and dedication to duty,” Force Public Relations Officer, CP Emmanuel C. S. Ojukwu, said.

Ojukwu said in a statement issued in Abuja that “while regretting the death in active service of three officers in the unfortunate incident of Monday, 20th July, 2015, the IGP observed that but for the indomitable spirit, sacrifice and professionalism of the deceased officers, the terrorists would have detonated the explosives in a high profile target.”

The Force Spokesman disclosed that “to further consolidate the commendation, the IGP has approved the posthumous promotion of the deceased officers.”

He disclosed that IGP Arase has also ordered the Medical Department to foot the medical bills of the injured officers. “In addition, four children each of the deceased officers will be offered scholarship up to secondary school level while the families will be afforded priority in the budding Police Housing Scheme. Similar gesture will be extended to other officers who paid the supreme sacrifice in the course of fighting insurgency,” Ojukwu stated.
