Sergeant Chukwudi Iboko is the gallant officer who died after his involvement in viral  gun duel with Owerri Zenith bank armed robbers.

The late father of eight children, in a 2.58 video clip released in June 2017, was seen engaging a four-man robbery gang in a gun battle, during which he shot dead one of the robbers.

The video, which went viral on the social media, also captured Chukwudi being shot at by one of the robbers after he ran out of a security post at the entrance of the bank.

It was confirmed that the officer died while in intensive care in April, two months after the robbery took place.

His widow who resides at Amakohia in the Ihitte Uboma Local Government Area of the state, with her seven children broke down in tears when the incident leading to the death of her husband was brought up in an interview.

It was gathered that her children not only skip meals, but are out of school as a result of the inability of their mother to pay their tuition fees.

Her first son, Favour, who is 16, cried profusely when asked the last time he spoke with his father before his death.

He said amid sobs, “I spoke with daddy two days before his death. He died on Thursday, but had promised to come home for the weekend. He promised to give me money for some textbooks I needed once he arrived. But he couldn’t fulfill his promise as he died two days to the day he promised to come home.’’

The 32-year-old widow said one of her 5-year-old triplets slumped, died when he saw his father’s corpse.

In an overwhelming show of love and devotion to a cause, Nigerians from different parts of the world raised over $15,000 (N4.713750) for the family of Sergeant Chukwudi Iboko, the policeman that was killed during a robbery in a branch of Zenith Bank in  Imo State.

As of 11.08pm on Monday, $16,476 had been raised on a fundraising platform, GoFundMe, by 390 people.

The feat was achieved within 24 hours of the start of the campaign by PUNCH Newspapers and other social activists in the country, led by Kayode Ogundamisi.

Succour has finally come way of the family of slain policemen as the State Police Command has promised prompt payment of the entitlements of the two policemen.

The state Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, on Tuesday, June 13, who commended the press for doing a “thorough job”, said the police would not abandon the victims’ families.
