2,000 Police officers protests non-payment of salaries
Over 2,000 Police officers attached to the Kaduna State Command are currently protesting over the non-payment of August and September salaries.

The angry police officers which cut across the rank and file of the Command, are assembled in front of the Salaries Office located in the Command headquarters in Kaduna Town.

Addressing the protesting police personnel, the State Commissioner of Police, Cyril Abeh, explained that the delay was from the Finance Ministry’s IPPS office and not the fault of the police.

“They are police officers operating under the law, if they misbehave, we will deal with them according to the law. This is mutiny.

“I am in the field attending to a very important security matter, but will be on my way back to headquarters to address them now,” Abeh said.
