Police IG Promotes 3 Officers Killed In Damaturu Bomb Blast

The Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase has approved post-humous promotion of the three officers that were killed when terrorists detonated explosives at a police checkpoint in Damaturu, Yobe on Sunday. Emmanuel Ojukwu, the Force Public Relations Officer, said in a statement issued on Monday that the IGP approved promotion in recognition of their gallantry while on duty.

“The IGP salutes the courage and gallantry displayed by officers of the Yobe State Police Command in containing the menace of insurgency in the State. He is highly pleased that in spite of imminent challenges, the officers exhibited a high sense of patriotism and dedication to duty. Continue...


“While regretting the death in active service of three officers in the unfortunate incident of Monday 20th July, 2015, the IGP observed that but for the indomitable spirit, sacrifice and professionalism of the deceased officers; the terrorists would have detonated the explosives in a high profile target.

“To further consolidate the commendation, the IGP has approved the post-humous promotion of the deceased officers.

“He has also ordered the Medical Department to foot the medical bill of the injured officer. In addition, four children each of the deceased officers will be offered scholarship up to secondary school level while the families will be afforded priority in the budding Police Housing Scheme.

“Similar gesture will be extended to other officers who paid the supreme sacrifice in the course of fighting insurgency”.
