Ondo Election: Police IG confirms non-payment of officers

02 December 2016, 12:18

Abuja - The Inspector General of the Police, Ibrahim Idris, has accepted that some police personnel who were on duty during the governorship election in Ondo State, were yet to be paid their allowances several days after the elections, Premium Times reports.

This is in contrast to the earlier position of the Nigeria Police.

The Police IG has therefore has set up a panel to investigate why the policemen were not paid their entitlements.

Idris, in a statement released on Friday by the Force spokesman, Don Awunah, appealed for “a little patience” from the affected policemen.

The issue is being looked into, and no one would be cheated of his due, the police IG assured.

The investigation panel, the statement said, would be headed by a retired assistant inspector general of police, Ali Ahmadu.

News24 had reported how some security agents deployed for Saturday’s governorship election in Ondo State slept in some police formations as they claimed that their allowances had not been paid.

Investigation revealed that the security agencies involved included the police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Department of State Security.
