The management of Erisco Foods, Nigeria’s foremost indigenous company, as it continues to celebrate its 40th anniversary, has commenced renovations at the police situated in Amichi town in Nnewi South Local Government Anambra.
The police station and vehicles were recently set ablaze by rioters during the nationwide protests which also claimed the lives of some police officers.
The company’s President/ Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Erisco Umeofia, said he had written the Inspector General of Police to rebuild the station situated at his home town and has already proceeded its reconstruction.
