Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has finally compensated the families of six police officers lynched in Lagos State amid the violence that trailed the recent nationwide EndSARS protests.

The governor recently gave the families N10 million each, totalling N60 million, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the slain officers are heroes because they sacrificed their lives to secure lives and properties in the state.

He added that the compensation is the state government’s humble reward for their gallantry, and he hopes the gesture would help the families to heal from the loss.

His words, “Some of our gallant police officers paid the supreme price for our security and safety during the recent EndSARS protests. 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 been placed on scholarship up to university level, courtesy of the State Government.”

“We must sustain the steady progress Lagos has recorded in security of lives and businesses. The issue of security is a shared mission. The more we are able to engage the citizens, the better we will become at nipping crimes in the bud. Our Government will continue to proactively engage all stakeholders as part of ongoing exercise to address all security concerns.”

“We have taken proactive measure of making the necessary budgetary provision for security. We will be committing N37.8 billion to Public Order and Safety in 2021 because we fully understand the correlation between development and security.”

“We will stop at nothing to flush out criminal elements whose sole aim is to foment chaos and perpetrate crimes. Lagos will offer no hiding place for bandits and criminals.”
