Kogi election: Police protest alleged non-payment of allowances in Ekiti

Kogi election: Police protest alleged non-payment of allowances in Ekiti 7f98a871 nigerian police force 696x445

Some policemen deployed to Kogi State from Ekiti state police command for the conduct of the November 16 , 2019 Governorship election have expressed displeasure over alleged refusal of the authorities to pay their allowances.

The policemen, numbering 225, said their names were allegedly expunged on the list of those that were due for payment despite risking their lives day and night to ensure adequate security during that volatile election.

They said it was appalling and shocking that the police authorities have refused to pay them a month after the election, while others have received theirs, which gave room for suspicion that the fund must have allegedly been embezzled by some high ranking police officers at the state or zonal level.

The aggrieved police officer, who briefed journalists under anonymity for fear of retribution, appealed to Inspector General of police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu, to investigate the cause of the delay.

The sources said a sum of N90,000 were paid for senior officers above Sergeant rank, while their men within the rank and file got N40,000, revealing that most of the victims were the lower cadre policemen.

A Sergeant, who spoke on behalf of the aggrieved policemen, said : “Two batches were deployed for the election in Ekiti. The Ekiti Command was expected to mobilise 500 policemen, but there was a shortfall.

“The police Commissioner , Mr Asuquo Amba, deployed 300 policemen about 10 days to the election. When there were complaints, another 150 were drafted to Kogi on the order of the CP five days to the election.

“Our investigation indicated that half of those who were deployed from Ekiti, numbering over 200, were excluded from payroll.

“We were curious to ask why must we be excluded from benefiting from the payments after discharging the national assignment?

“You could all attest to the fact that the Kogi Governorship election was the most volatile and tension-soaked in recent times. We risked our lives for the success of the poll only for us to be paid this way.

“We appeal to the Inspector General of police, Mr. Adamu to investigate this matter and mete out proper punishment to whoever culpable. Those behind this are the ones responsible for the bad image in the Force”, he stated.

But when contacted, Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti Command, Mr. Sunday Abutu, denied the allegation.

The Police spokesperson said all the entitlements due to the police that were deployed for the Kogi election had been paid.
“I am not aware of this. To the best of my knowledge, all the entitlements regarding Kogi issue had been paid.
“Let me also say that there was no protest anywhere, nobody had protested and whoever has any issue should follow the normal channels”, the police spokesman said.

Punch said its decision shows its protest against autocracy and military-style repression under Buhari’s administration.

Adesina wrote: “If you decide to call him Major General, he wasn’t dashed the rank, he earned it. So, you are not completely out of order.
