TheFact Nigeria had reported that Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, had, in July, announced a new Nigeria Police Manpower Development Policy, part of which prioritizes human capacity development and welfare of Police Officers for better police service delivery.
During the presentation, CP Sama’ila Shu’aibu Dikko charged the beneficiaries to judiciously use the money for the up keep and welfare of the families, emphasizing that the welfare scheme was meant to ameliorate the suffering or hardship faced by the deceased colleagues’ immediate family before the benefits of such officers were paid.
