Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, on Friday presented three cheques of N2 million to the families of three mobile policemen killed at Ogba Zoological Gardens, Benin by suspected kidnappers of Andy Ehanire, the brother to the Minister of State for Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire.
The policemen were killed on September 21, 2017 when the kidnappers stormed the zoo and seized Ehanire, who was the chief executive of the gardens.
"We are not here to celebrate but to remember our fallen heroes, specifically Inspector Henry Eguoba, Sergeant Christopher Omoregie and Sergeant Stephen Igbinoba of the Nigeria Police Force, who died in a very sad incident involving the manager of Ogba Zoological Gardens and Nature Park.
"This is just a token to convey our appreciation and gratitude in consideration of what they did for us," he said.
Obaseki promised to sponsor the education of their children.
