They have families they left behind, we must be compassionate to them and to those around us.”He continued, “as government there is still much that can be done through legislation beyond setting a day aside to mark the event, we need to care for the families of the fallen heroes; all the persons who lost their lives in the line of duty should be remembered and when you see their families, offer help.” “If we know that there is death on the road, most of us will not pass through the road, but, that is what the security men do, they will move to make the road safe; there is a lot of criminality in the land and we also know there is a lot of hunger in the land; we must continue to pray for our country and as we remember our fallen heroes, Let us not be tired of doing good,” Governor Okowa said at the well attended service.
