Natives and residents of Kpaduma I, II and I II communities in Asokoro district of Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) have commended the Police Officers Women Wing from the force headquarters for coming to their rescue, by distributing palliative to vulnerable people in the area.
Simon Baba-Yerimah, Secretary of the communities, who spoke on behalf of the communities district head, Ahmadu Mamayi, during the distribution led by the Asokoro district Police Divisional Head, Aisha Yusuf, said that the police women have proven that they are truly mothers who have the interest of their children at heart.
According to the district head, they were surprised to see that the Police who many people thought were there to only protect the people, also have the interest of people’s welfare at heart, by ensuring that they ease their suffering during the COVID-19 partial lockdown.
“We want to sincerely appreciate the High Ranking Police Women Wing who were led to our community by Asokoro Police divisional head, Mrs. Aisha Yusuf, for their kind gesture and motherly love shown to us by coming to our aid during this trying period of the lockdown, because things have been very challenging for all of us since this lockdown started.
“Over 300 natives and residents of this community benefitted from this gesture, bags of rice, cartoons of indomie noodles and other food items that they distributed to our people in this community.
“In the past, we never believe that the Police can have this kind of good heart to reach out to people, but this kind gesture exhibited today, has proven all of us wrong that the Police also feel the pains and plight if people that are suffering.
“We want to appeal to other privileged well meaning Nigerians to emulate the kind gesture of the Police women by also coming to the rescue of people in this community. Because, there are many vulnerable people here that need the assistance of the government and privileged Nigerians during this period,” he said.
The High Ranking Police Women Wing of Force Headquarters had last week distributed about 300 20kg bags of rice, about 200 cartoons of Indomie noodles, cretes of eggs and other food items to vulnerable people of Kpaduma community to ease their suffering during the lockdown.
