Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has approved scholarships to children of the policemen who were victims of the violence that erupted in Lagos state a week ago.
The Lagos state government on Wednesday October 28, directed the Lagos State Scholarship Board to award scholarship to the children of the slain officers up to the university level.
It was also learnt that twenty-nine Divisional Police Stations and 17 Police Posts were razed by hoodlums disguising as protesters. Also, six police officers were lynched, 36 critically injured, while 71 police operational vehicles were torched.
Governor Sanwo-Olu who visited the Command Headquarters in Ikeja to boost the morale of officers, promised to rebuild the burnt police stations and also give life insurance to police officers.
The Governor also promised to compensate the families of the late policemen who died in the violence. The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, however, assured Sanwo-Olu of police’s commitment to strengthen security across the state.
Sanwo-Olu said the statutory duties of the Police could not be wished away because of the actions of a few bad eggs, noting that the impact of the police officers’ absence on the roads was generally felt by residents.
