Wike announces the arrest of gunmen who murdered 3 policemen, offers N60M compensation

The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike has revealed the arrest of three gunmen who murdered three policemen on the Rumuokoro flyover in Port Harcourt.

It would be recalled that on the 25th of November, some unknown gunmen kidnapped the managing director of the IGPES Group of Oil and Gas Company, Seni Awosike, and killed three of his police escort.

Speaking about the new development in the case at Rivers State Emblem Appeal Fund Launching on Tuesday, Nyesom Wike announced that the gunmen have been arrested.

Wike further revealed the Rivers State government will be giving the families of each murdered police officer N20 million each amidst praising the police for their efficiency.

He said;

“I think that we are tired in this country with every year meeting to launch the emblem to support families of the fallen heroes.

“What I thought, as is done in advanced countries, the day should be used for remembrance of their (veterans) efforts.

“That means, by now, as a country, we should have a standing fund that will take care of the families of the fallen heroes. That is what serious countries should be talking about.”
