Punch Opens GOfundme Page For Family Of Policeman Slain In Owerri Robbery

This fund is set up to help the widow and six children of Sergeant Chukwudi Iboko, a brave Nigerian policeman who fought valiantly against a gang of armed robbers who invaded a bank in Owerri, South East Nigeria in February 2017. He succumbed to his injuries a day after the incident.



Sergeant Iboko's exploits and bravery are documented in a CCTV video of the incident which went viral on the Internet, four months after the robbery.

His last child aged 5 died on sighting the corpse of his dad. His widow and six children have been left indigent by his death and require help for rent, feeding and school expenses.

Your donations will be used to pay off his family's accumulated rent, school fees and other expenses.

This brave policeman deserves our support.

Please help in the following ways:

1. Kindly donate to this fund.

2. Help share his story and appeal for help by sharing this hashtag: #HonourSergeantChukwudiIboko

This FUND was launched by Nigeria's leading newspaper PUNCH (@mobilepunch) and social activists led by Kayode Ogundamisi
Help spread the word!

  4. Nice one @mobilepunch. I hope it doesn't end with @mobilepunch creating a Gofundme account for him. I hope the NPF, Imo State Govt., Zenith Bank and the National Assemblies will take responsibility for the family welfare, by providing the kids with educational scholarships and empowering the wife with an entrepreneur skill(s) if she doesn't have any with a start-up capital.

  5. It is a pity. He was so brave and gallant. He wouldn't have died if there was a second police on ground because he really challenged them. RIP Chukwudi.
    This is a call for charity but let government gave his family part of that Ikoyi abandoned funds so no one claimed it.

  9. Eayah felt for the family. May God comfort the mother of the last child and comfort all his siblings too.

    May God wipe their tears permanently amen.

    Thank God for the Punch doing this. That is why most policemen dont want to put their lives out there for anyone.

  10. I'm glad that video went viral. Gratuity and some monies assigned for officers who die on duty(can't remember what it's called) should be quickly paid please. The process takes too long. I also hope his relatives haven't pushed the poor widow aside. This gofundme will go a long way.
    On an amebo note, please stop bringing in kids you can't take care of. At his level, he had seven kids. In this economy? Please do family planning so that you can enjoy yourselves without necessarily bringing in more kids

  11. The forlorn look on the wife's face is heart breaking!

    And the child died again?
    How much can a mere mortal take?

    God will help u my fellow woman.

  12. May his soul RIP, but I want to reiterate what someone had mentioned above, how can someone at that income level produce 8 children?, and the woman self just dey receive and produce children.

    Where is the place of family planning in this modern age.

    And some of these folks will now try to push the responsibility of taking care of their football team to a more comfortable family member that has just 2 or 3 children.

    Abeg people should give birth to the number of children they can provide very good care for.

    1. If he was alive, he would never need your cent to provide for his family. This is a sad situation and even if he had just two kids, they still would need help. Jugina

  17. Good move
    That man was super brave.
    He should be honoured.
    But why allow a 5year old see a corpse how much more that of the father?
    Quite sad and painful.
    It is well with the family

  18. We can now see and understand why our policemen duck at the sight of robbers, bravely does not put food on the table of a widowed wife nor pay fees of fatherless children. Hopefully, we can blame them less, curse them less and certainly, expect less Van Damne moves from them.

  21. NSITF please pay this woman her husband's benefits after all he died in the course of doing his job. I only hope NPF have been making the mandatory contribution to the Fund.
