Forming a curve at the school entrance were smartly dressed policemen who received the lad like a VIP.
Each of the officers offered him a handshake as is being accorded to VIPs when they arrive at the airport of foreign countries on official duties, some gave him hugs.
Joziah's dad died in April 2021 in a fatal car accident while on his way to work.
It is said that the kind officers gesture is born out of their desire for the lad not to feel alone on his first day of school.
People hailed the gesture of the police officers
Sabrina Brown said:
"I'm not in the mood for this now, I was ready to go with being mad all day!. I was having what looked like a bad morning and I get a notification to look at this. Now I'm crying because of the love and humanity!!! Now this makes whatever I got going seem like nothing. I love acts of love and kindness and this was outstanding. Hats of the officers for being there for him. All love to the family for their loss!"

"Kudos to all involved!"
Thelma Irimagha stated:
"This is the most beautiful thing I have seen in a long while. It warms my heart so. Humanity is still alive I see."
