The Police High Command has denied a report about protests over unpaid allowances by policemen attached to the Presidential Villa in Abuja. The Force Public Relations Officer, JIMOH MOSHOOD, said the report published by a popular online tabloid is untrue.

MOSHOOD said salaries and allowances of police personnel across ranks throughout all formations, departments and detachments, including those attached to the Presidential Villa, are being paid as at when due.

He said special and ad-hoc duties allowances are also promptly paid on completion of such duties, thereby denying the claim that policemen at the Presidential Villa had not been paid their allowances since 2015.

The Force spokesman said the report was carefully studied and was found to be outright falsehood, unfounded, mischievous and fake news.

He said there was no time policemen assigned to the Presidential Villa or anywhere else in the country protested over any issue relating to payment of allowances.

JIMOH MOSHOOD said the Nigeria Police Force is a disciplined organization and its personnel are not allowed to engage in any act that can subject the Force to public ridicule or embarrassment.

MOSHOOD said it was the responsibility of the Force to educate the author of the report that police personnel’s emolument includes salary and other allowances, and in addition all personnel of the Force enjoy insurance and assurance cover provided for by the Force and the Federal Government.
