#Governor Ifeanyi #Ugwuanyi of #Enugu State, on Thursday, paid condolence visits to families of some of the #police officers who were attacked by yet-to-be-identified gunmen, at checkpoints in Obeagu-Amechi, Enugu South Local Government Area and Amagunze, Nkanu East LGA, residing at the suburb of Ugbo-Odogwu, Trans Ekulu and Edward Nnaji Street, Abakpa Nike, in Enugu East LGA.
The grief-stricken governor, who condoled with the families, offered automatic employment to the wives of the deceased and paid three months salaries of their late husbands including other cash donations.
Gov. Ugwuanyi announced that the condolence package is applicable to wives of other affected officers, adding that the spouses also have the option of scholarship of their children to secondary school level in place of automatic employment.
At the Ugbo-Odogwu residence of late Inspector Timothy Tion, an indigene of Benue State, Gov. Ugwuanyi consoled the wife, Janet Okuma, offered her automatic employment and gave her three-month salaries of her husband with other cash donations.
The governor, who was accompanied by a team of senior police officers led by the Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), ACP Fidelis Ogarabe, prayed for the repose of the souls of Inspector Tion and other victims, assuring that their death will not be in vain.
At Edward Nnaji Street, Abakpa, Gov. Ugwuanyi met with the father and siblings of one of the slain police officers, Inspector Emeka Nnaji, from Owo in Nkanu East LGA, and consoled them.
He equally offered automatic employment to the wife of the deceased, Mrs. Nwadi Nnaji, who was at his husband’s residence at Agbani, and announced the same amount of money with other packages for her.
Responding, the wife of late Inspector Tion, Janet, thanked Gov. Ugwuanyi for his kindness in coming to console them, and for offering her automatic employment.
The aged father of late Inspector Nnaji, Mr. Christian Nnaji, also thanked the governor for the rare gesture and asked God to continue to bless him.
The Enugu State Command of the Nigeria Police Force, in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, had disclosed that “preliminary investigations have commenced”.

After Meeting NGF Chairman, Akpabio Apologies To state Givernors Over N30bn Claim
The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has finally apologised to the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) under the leadership of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State over his comment on the N30bn allowance allegedly given to them to cushion the effect of inflation in food prices.
This was coming after the Senate President held a meeting with the NGF Chairman and some of his counterparts in Abuja yesterday.
Akpabio had, at a plenary sitting last Tuesday, said an “unverified report” indicated that state governors received N30bn each from the Federation Account to cushion the effect of inflation and the high cost of food prices.
The statement has generated controversies in the public space, with some commentators asking governors to come clean about the money they did not collect.
However, on Monday, Akpabio in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Eseme Eyiboh, retracted the statement, saying the SP held the governors in high esteem.
The statement reads below:
“During the session, the President of the Senate commented on the payment of an unverified cumulative sum of about N30bn to the sub-national governments by the Federal Government for various interventions to ameliorate the food situation of our citizens at the sub-national governments.
“The unfortunate conjectures to take away the kernel in the material facts of FAAC payment are rather regretted. In considering the well-intended motive of urging state governments to collaborate with the Federal government of President Bola Tinubu to facilitate strategic interventions to mitigate the prevailing economic situation in the country remains the underpinning motivation in the comment.
“The President of the Senate is not oblivious to the fact that state governments are functional partners in all the efforts of the current administration of President Bola Tinubu and are also valuable stakeholders’ in the various legislative engagements of the legislature in creating the nexus between the legislature and the people.”
Eyiboh added that Akpabio has always demonstrated commitment to team building and shall not do less in the circumstance.
He, therefore, urged the sub-national governments not to be distracted by any misunderstanding of the context and true meaning of the statement.
He added, “The President of the Senate recognises and appreciates the current efforts of the governors at ameliorating the adverse effects of the current inclement socio-economic environment and therefore invites more hands on the plow to complement the renewed hope agenda.”
