Oyo Govt Presents N1M Cash To Wife Of Late NSCDC Officer

Oyo State Government has donated N1m to the family of Inspector Sunday Omikunle, an officer in the Oyo State Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps who died in a ghastly accident while on duty.

The deceased officer who was seconded to the State joint security task force team codenamed “Operation Burst” died while receiving treatment after an auto crash in the Oke Ogun area of the state.

On behalf of the state government, the NSCDC State Commandant, Dr John Adewoye who presented the cash to the wife of the deceased, Mrs Olayinka Omikunle told newsmen that the gesture was a reflection of government concern for the welfare of officers and men of the security outfit.

Adewoye said the gesture, coming from the state government as well as the insurance scheme being enjoyed by the operatives would go a long way to encourage the men and officers to give their all to the maintenance of peace and security in the state.

He promised that, aside from the gesture from the state government, the authorities of the NSCDC would also compensate the family of the deceased in due course.

Earlier, the Oyo State Deputy Governor, Otunba Moses Alake-Adeyemo in a brief remark after the weekly security meeting with all Heads of Security agencies in the state at the Executive Council Chamber commiserated with the families of the deceased officer describing the death as unfortunate.

He added that the cash donation was compensation for the death of the NSCDC officer who died in active service.

Adeyemo who prayed God to grant the family of the deceased the fortitude to bear the loss, assured that the State government would not renege in its commitment to the welfare of officers and men of Operation Burst and such other security agencies operating in the state.

Special Adviser on Security to Governor Abiola Ajimobi, Mr Segun Bolarinwa said the donation would serve as a morale booster to the security officers and would also serve as an indication that families of deceased officers of the security outfit will not be abandoned in time of need.
