IGP Ibrahim summoned by Aso Rock over police protest in Maiduguri

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the IGP was seen heading towards the office of the Chief of Staff to the President, Malam Abba Kyari, at the presidential villa, Abuja.

The report quoted a source at the Presidential villa, who preferred to remain anonymous as saying that the IGP was in the villa to brief the presidency on the police protest.

The report noted that the police in a statement issued by the force public relations officer, Jimoh Moshood, dismissed the media report, and claimed that the policemen only made inquiries on their allowances and salaries before returning to their duty posts.

According to the statement, the delay in the payment is due to late passage of the appropriation act, adding that with its assent by President Buhari, the issue will soon be addressed.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that mobile police officers deployed to Maiduguri, the state capital of Borno state protested in the early hours of Monday, July 2, over their unpaid allowances.

This is coming few months after their colleagues in Aso Rock, Abuja protested over the same unpaid risk caution allowances from May 2015 to 2017.

The report said the mobile policemen were deployed to Borno to boost the counter-insurgency operation in the state.
