Features & Reports

Relatives of policemen executed in the theft assault at the Zenith Bank office at Wethedral Road, Owerri, Imo State, on February 22, 2017, have expressed gratitude toward Punch Nigeria Limited and Nigerians for their support.

SUNDAY PUNCH’s write about the episode attracted consideration regarding the situation of the families, who got monetary guide from corporate associations and people including the bank, where the policemen were sent before their demise.

In the assault, Sergeant Chukwudi Iboko and Sunday Agbo, passed on due to shot wounds, while another policeman, Otu Attang, lost one of his eyes.

The PUNCH daily papers in organization with some social activists, driven by Kayode Ogundamisi, propelled a GoFundMe record to help the families. Our journalist, who went by the family, saw guests at their living arrangement including a non-administrative association, Genius Eyes International Foundation For The Hopeless, whose head, Mr. Paulcy Iwuala, said the NGO came to bolster the family with foodstuffs and money.

Iboko’s widow, Rose, who talked with PUNCH on Friday, said the daily paper with the support of Nigerians and Zenith Bank, had given her motivations to live once more.
