Police Officers Wives Association (POWA) said it had put in place measures to alleviate plight of widows of policemen and vulnerable children across the country.

National President of the association, Mrs Agharase Arase, made the disclosure on Saturday in Lafia, shortly after meeting with POWA members, women police officers and children.

Arase was represented by Mrs Jerusha Katso, wife Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Force Headquarters, Abuja.

She said that available statistics indicated that the number of police widows and vulnerable children was increasing across the country.

“We thought it wise to put in place palliatives that will address the suffering of the increasing number of widows in the association due to the demise of their husbands,” she said.

The association’s president said that her visit to the state was to meet and boost the morale of orphans and widows of police officers.

She disclosed that relief materials, scholarship and skills acquisition programmes were among measures put in place to assist members of POWA in the country.

She charged women police officers and POWA members to always champion the course of peace and unity in the state and country.

Earlier, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Alhaji Garba Shehu-Batsare, had commended Arase for the visit and pleaded for more partnership with the association to rid the country of criminal elements.
