Police Authorities Confirm Planned Protest by Personnel in North-East Over Unpaid Arrears

The Nigeria Police Force, NPF, has admitted that certain aggrieved senior officers in Borno and Yobe States are planning a mega protest over their unpaid six months’ salary arrears by the police authorities. This was according to a police signal obtained by SaharaReporters.

According to the officers, the protest will hold at the headquarters of Zone 15 in Maiduguri, SaharaReporters gathered.

The policemen, who revealed that their six-month allowance increment had yet to be paid, asked President Muhammadu Buhari to rescue them from the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba.

Recall that President Buhari 2021 had approved a new salary structure for the Force.

The approved police salary structure whose implementation was supposed to have begun in January 2022 was only enforced in July 2022 with only one-month arrears of payment, with six months outstanding.

The officers affected by the nonpayment of the salary arrears include senior inspectors, Assistant Superintendents of Police, -ASPs, Deputy Superintendents of Police, -DSPs, Superintendents of Police, and Chief Superintendents of Police.
