We Are Suffering, Hungry – Policemen Cry Out, Demand November Salary
Some police officers from various formations and commands around the nation have expressed concern over the non-payment of their November salary.
They revealed this information to newsmen on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
The cops, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that the failure to pay their November wage had exacerbated their misery.
The policemen, who claimed to be hungry, stated that other security personnel had received their November pay.
Several attempts to increase their pay till Wednesday have failed, according to the police.
They added that the police administration does not mention when their pay would be paid in a signal.
One of the officers said, “Help us shout it loud and clear, no November salary for police, the signal above indicated like that.
“All others security agents have been paid. What is our offense, is it a curse to be in Nigeria police?”
Another officer said that anyone who reveals his or her identity would be accused of leaking official secrets.
“Economic crunch has crushed most of us due to irrational cost of living, a hungry man is hangry.
“Police are seriously hunting anyone that air his views, they say you are leaking official secret, they want you to remain zombie, suffering and smelling, please cover the identity”.
Another police officer in his own submission said, “It is lame excuses, police can not bear the brunt, is not our fault it is leadership failures, for Christ sake, all others security agents have been paid since last week, today is 8/12, how do they want us to survive when we are not doing other jobs or to go and commit crimes.”
But, the police authority in a signal issued by Force Headquarters in Abuja and obtained by DAILY POST on Wednesday, noted that the delay was due to a delay in the processing of funds from the federal ministry of finance.
The signal addressed to various commands and formations reads, “Information received from IPPIS unit of OAGF indicates delay in the processing of funds from the federal ministry of finance for payment of November 2021 salaries which that there will be a delay in payment of November 2021 salary.”
