… Wives of Police officers cry out over killing of 265 of their husbands
… Say the staggering number killed since the insurgency began in Borno State
… Call on the Federal Government to end insurgency
… Lament that families of killed officers neglected and abandoned
Wives of Police officers in the country under the leadership of Hajara Alkali have cried out to the federal government to come to their rescue. The women who called out to the government under the auspices of Police Officers Wives Association, POWA, their umbrella group, stated that their husbands, a staggering number of 265, have been killed in Borno State alone since the outbreak of insurgency.
While calling on the Federal Government to provide adequate protection for their husbands in the course of their duty, the women said loudly in their distress call that the government must seriously look into their call to avoid further jeopardizing the lives of their husbands. Speaking while welcoming Hajara Alkali, president of POWA and wife of the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Baba Alkali, over the weekend in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, the chairman Borno State branch of POWA, Mrs. Zara Yakubu, disclosed that over 260 police officers have been killed in Borno State since the outbreak of the Boko Haram insurgency in the Northeast zone of the country.
In her words: “Their families have, as a result, been exposed to all forms of hazards and vulnerabilities. The lives of police officer matter. “It is heartbreaking to note that 265 police officers have paid the supreme price in the counter-insurgency war here in Borno. They lost their lives while protecting the territorial integrity of our great country. “Their families have been neglected, and their children abandoned to their fate.
They have been allowed to bear the burden of the sacrifices of their breadwinners,” Zara Yakubu said. In response, the wife of the Inspector General of Police, Mrs. Alkali, said she was determined to improve the living conditions of the families of the fallen officers as well as empower others to serve as motivation for their husbands at the war front. She donated some items including grinding machines, deep freezers, tailoring equipment, and others to 500 widows of fallen police officers.
